Hide Folder Options

Hide Folder Options

This is a cool trick which you can use to keep your private folders secret from the intruding eyes other users. Suppose you a some private documents in a folder and you made it hidden but it doesn't give you assurance that your folders will be hidden from others. If after someone enable "Show hidden files and folders" from Tools->Folder Options..->View tab, he can easily discover your private folder.

But just imagine if he can't even find the "Folder Options.." in Tools in menubar?

Wicked cool.. huh??;-)
Here is the way to do it:

1. Go to start then in run type regedit

2. After opening new window go through following
HKEY_CURRENT_ USER\Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ Explorer

3. Double click Explorer then there is "NoFolderOptions" [without quotes] option on right panel double click it and set it to 0 [zero in number] in Hexadecimal.

4. Oh, so you can't see "NoFolderOptions" on the right panel? No problem. Right click

Go for this one:

i. run -> gpedit.msc
ii. User Configuration
iii. Administrative template
iv. Windows Component
v. Windows explorer
vi. In right panel, double click on"remove folder option menu item from tools menu"
vii. Select 'disable' -> apply
viii. ok

opps!!! what have you done with your folder options in tools menu??????
