HideMeShowMe iconHideMeShowMe

HideMeShowMe alternately hides and shows a folder. It just changes the folder name by putting a dot in front of it. This makes it hidden from Finder. This is not much security, but keeps most users from suspecting the folder exists.

Drop a folder on the HideMeShowMe icon and it will set the folder to be hidden. Double-click the icon and the folder will be hidden or shown.

Make sure you use a new copy of HideMeShowMe for each folder to be hidden. (Name it anything you want.) If the folder is hidden and you set a new folder for a given HideMeShowMe, you will have no way to show the folder without using a terminal window!

This Applescript application simply uses the Unix command "mv" to do the dirty work. Open a terminal window and type "man mv" for more information.

Suggestion are always welcome. Please include the product name in the subject line of any email.

Oppuk gazed down at the creature in disgust.  Not only had it forced its barbaric name upon him, it smelled of floral aromatics, which the denizens of this world often applied to themselves in the mistaken belief that the natural scents of their bodies were noisome, while blatant artificial odors were somehow more acceptable.
