Hide the Links Folder

By: Arie Slob

The Links Folder in your Favorites Folder can not be deleted. You can hide it however:

  1. In Windows Explorer go to \Windows\Favorites
  2. Right-click on the Links folder
  3. From the menu select Properties
  4. Place a Check-mark in the attributes box for Hidden

Now the Links folder won't show on the Favorites menu.

If you have the Links Toolbar visible, you can hide it by Right-clicking an empty space on the Toolbar, and clicking Links from the drop-down menu to clear the check-mark for the Links Toolbar.

The same procedure can be followed to hide the Software Updates Folder (or any other Folder for that matter).
