Hiding a folder without using any software( in vista)

There are many softwares available to hide a folder. But they are not at all required.
Here i'm going to tell you how to do it without any software.
Right click on the folder you want to hide and select properties, now there is an option hidden, select that and press apply. Now the folder disappears!!

To unhide the folder, goto control panel>appearance and personalization>folder options>show hidden files and folders>under view tab>hidden files and folders>do not show hidden files and folders>press apply and ok. now you can see the folder in diffrent transparency level compared to other folders. Right click on the folder unselect hidden. thats it!

Note:again to hide that folder you've to change the modified setting under view tab to show hidden files and folders.

Boot quickly!

This trick works on computers having multiple core processors.
Usually by default windows uses only single processor while booting. If you have multiple core processor you can speed up the booting using all your processors rather using just one!
to do this
goto start menu,select Run,type the following code msconfig press enter; now a window will appear. there you can see boot tab, select that then advanced options under boot tab, again a new window will appear; now you can see an option showing number of processors.
Set number of processor according to your system(eg.if you've dual core set it at 2). Press ok then apply to save the settings!

( I tested this in Vista)
