    In Windows you can make hidden folders. What can you do in OS 10?

    Just use the terminal to rename the file/folder, and put a "." infront of the name (example: '.Secret Files').

    Note: If you want a space in the name, either use quotation marks (" or '), or escape the space (put a backslash infront of the space, like: mkdir .Secret\ Files).
