WinMend Folder Hidden is a free utility to protect private information. The application offers a simple and efficient solution to hide an unlimited number of files and folders on your PC regardless of whether they are stored on a local or removable drive.

What the application does is literally hide folders and files of any size and type, making them completely invisible from Windows Explorer on your computer. Although it is possible to manually hide folders, files, and drives in Windows 7 and 8, the process may be inconvenient to many users, so here is where a tool like this comes into play. Files and folders hidden with this tool will be visible only from within the app and will remain concealed until you decide to change their status using this application. Access to Folder Hidden is protected by a password, which ensures a higher level of security.

Folder Hidden has a simple and smart interface that makes the selection of files and folders to hide extremely simple. It's possible to load individual or multiple folders/files manually or you can simply drag and drop items to the program interface. From within the app, you can unhide or make visible one or various items with a click, or simply remove any selected item from the list.

A few configuration options are available in Folder Hidden; you can customize its interface by changing its color, modify the password, and select any of the multiple available languages.

In short, WinMend Folder Hidden is an efficient security tool that makes the task of hiding folders and files easy and fast. It is a quick solution for home users that wish to keep confidential and sensitive data away from curious eyes. The application is free and does not contain ads.
