How do I rename a folder with nothing?

Answered by James Kissner

To rename a folder with no visible name, you can follow these steps:

1. Right-click on the folder that you want to rename.
2. From the context menu, select the “Rename” option. Alternatively, you can simply select the folder and press the F2 function key on your keyboard.

3. After clicking or pressing F2, the folder name will become editable, allowing you to enter a new name. However, instead of typing a visible name, we will use a special character code.

4. To create a folder with no name, hold down the ALT key on your keyboard.
5. While holding the ALT key, type “0160” using the numeric keys on the right side of your keyboard. Ensure that you use the numeric keys on the right side, not the top row of numbers.

6. Once you’ve typed in the code, release the ALT key.
7. You will notice that the folder name field is now empty, but the folder still exists.

Congratulations! You have successfully renamed the folder without giving it a visible name. Please note that the folder is still accessible and functional, but it will appear blank in your file explorer.

I hope this explanation helps! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
