    Friend, you can hide the folder by right clicking the folder and select Properties. There at the bottom you can view the Hide folder option. You can mark or tick it to hide the folder.

    To un hide folder go to control panel and go for Folder Options and un hide it. You can also go for Organize and then go for 'Folder Options' and select 'View hidden folders'.
