How to Lock and Hide Folders in Windows Without Additional Software?

Follow these steps:

1) Open Notepad and copy the contents of the code below. ( Or Click here to get the code in .doc
format)

Update: The code given in earlier link is incorrect, please use this new link in .doc format

cls
@ECHO OFF
title Folder Locker
if EXIST “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” goto
UNLOCK
if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER
:CONFIRM
echo Are you sure u want to Lock the folder(Y/N)
set/p “cho=>”
if %cho%==Y goto LOCK
if %cho%==y goto LOCK
if %cho%==n goto END
if %cho%==N goto END
echo Invalid choice.
goto CONFIRM
:LOCK
ren Locker “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
attrib +h +s “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
echo Folder locked
goto End
:UNLOCK
echo Enter password to Unlock folder
set/p “pass=>”
if NOT %pass%==Password Kamu goto FAIL
attrib -h -s “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}”
ren “Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}” Locker
echo Folder Unlocked successfully
goto End
:FAIL
echo Invalid password
goto end
:MDLOCKER
md Locker
echo Locker created successfully
goto End
:End

2) Change the password by replacing ‘type your password here‘ in the code with your
password.

3) Save it as XYZ.bat (Note: Try to be innovative and save it in such a way that it sounds like a
system file so that nobody will try to bother clicking it)
Update: If you are not sure how to change the file extension from .txt to .bat, check How to
Change File Extension in Windows.

4) Close the file if it is still opened and double click XYZ.bat


5) It will create a new folder called ‘Locker’ automatically. (If you want the file name to be
different, find and replace Locker in the code with the name of your choice). This new locker
folder will be created in the same hierarchy as the .bat file.

6) Place the contents inside and double click XYZ.bat, it will ask whether you want to lock. Say
‘Y’ and now your folder will disappear.

7) To view again, double click XYZ.bat again and enter your password.

Frequently asked questions:

1. What if I no longer want to hide the folder?

Just delete the XYZ.bat file when the locker folder is in visible mode. Or you can rename the
Locker folder to something else and the next time if you double click, it will create an empty
Locker folder.

2. What if I deleted the .bat file when the Locker folder is not hidden?
You can download the code again, change the password and create the XYZ.bat file. Now paste
that file in the same hierarchy as the Locker folder. It will work as before with the new password.

3. What if I deleted the .bat file when the Locker folder is hidden?

The contents are still there hidden, so don’t panic! Just download the code again, change the
password and create the XYZ.bat file. Now paste that file in the same hierarchy as the Locker
folder is hidden. Double click the .bat file and you can unlock the Locker folder with the new
password.

Note: This trick is only to provide Privacy, so that nobody accidentally opens your private
folders. It does not provide any ultimate security. Anybody can open XYZ.bat in any text editor
and view the code. As I had mentioned it before try to keep this file in not an obvious place with
a name that looks like a system file, so that nobody will have a chance to touch or doubt at this
file.
