There is a way to hide them yes. Right click the folder you wish to hide then go to properties. You will see near the bottom "Hidden" NOW!! before you do this, you need to check ur settings and make sure you can test this on a folder that's empty. If you make a buff coloured folder on desk top, open it then go to "Tools" & click
then click the view tab
then look for "Do not show hidden files and folders.
With these settings you can hide anything. There is another way but thats easier to tell when they are hidden. If you wanna check this out then look here >> click here
