Hide file types

Is there a way to have Vista hide all files of a certain type, instead of setting each individual file of this type of 'hidden '?

I use MS Word and do it by saving backups of all the Word files (like .wbk), but they clutter up my shirts. Can I set up Vista to automatically hide files. WBK on?

>Can I put Vista to automatically hide files. WBK on?

No, Vista can't automactically hide files and folders.

There is a "Workaround"...
Open a new file > put all the .wbk files in this folder.

Here are 2 tutorials to 'hide' the folder:

    Is it possible to create a folder that can hide files automatically, when they are copied in it?

    Yes. A sort of roundabout.

    For this example, create a folder on your C drive named HideTest.

    Download http://winsupport.org/utilities/freedos-choice.html Choice.Exe (click on the link to download the utility program near the bottom of the page. "And save it in the C:\HideTest folder).

    Open Notepad and then copy and paste the following text in it:

    Off @Echo

    : All
    Set FilesToHide = No.

    : GoToDir

    : Top
    IF FilesToHide %! Is Yes! Attrib *. * + H

    : Choice
    Choice.Exe /c:YN t:Y, 30 are looking for files to hide
    If ErrorLevel 2 Goto: exit

    : MakeList
    Dir > TempList.Txt

    : CheckFiles
    Set FilesToHide = No.
    Find.Exe "0 file (s)' TempList.Txt
    If ErrorLevel 1 Set FilesToHide = Yes
    If exist TempList.Txt Del TempList.Txt

    : Loop
    Goto: Top

    : Output
    Set FilesToHide =
    If exist TempList.Txt Del TempList.Txt

    Click on file, then save under...

    Go to C:\HideTest

    Name the file Hide.Bat

    Click Save

    Close Notepad

    Open Windows Explorer

    Go to C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Start where user_name is your own username.

    In the right pane, right click, select New, and then click shortcut.

    Click Browse, and then navigate to C:\HideTest and click on Hide.Bat, click Next.

    Type a new name or accept the default name and click Finish.

    Right-click on the newly created shortcut, and click Properties.

    Change the race: from the normal window to reduced.

    Click on apply, and then click Ok.

    Restart your computer.

    Note: In the line above Choice.Exe c:YN t:Y, 30 are looking for files to hide, 30 is the number of seconds it will wait before checking the new files. This can be from 1 to 99.

    Edit: Just to satisfy my curiosity, why do you do this?

  • How to decrease file type, save options for?

    I have options for 16 types of files when I "save under" in Photoshop. (see attachment)

    Nine of them are formats that I will NEVER, EVER use.

    While I appreciate the ability of PS to open these types, I want to simplify the list "save under" for types that I'll actually use.

    I would like to eliminate the arrow options.

    Is it possible to show me only a list of file types selection to save on?

    If we separate these os, PS, I'm OK with that because they are formats of dead to my work, even if it means that I is not no opening these formats in PS.

    (I know - I just say 'Open with' Windows, but I really don't like if I lose the opportunity to play with these types of files).

    Is it possible to reduce this list?

  • No option to save the file, type of content/file missing in the list of Applications

    I want to be able to click on a link to a file and have the option to open the file with a specified application.

    When you click on the file I want to open with a specified application, I get a save or cancel the option.
    When I look in Preferences > Applications, the file type is missing from the list.

    It worked. It no longer works. It is not a problem with the Web site. I need to know where in FF settings I can change that.

    Thank you

    What types of files you want to download?
    Have you checked how servers send the files?

    You can rename (or delete) the file mimeTypes.rdf in the profile folder of Firefox to reset all the actions file.

  • Can't open associated application of unknown file type

    I'm trying to download or open a file type of .psdata for which I have an installed application but when I click on the FF link simply opens the file that displays a page of binary data of course.

    FF used to open this file correctly, but now it does not.

    Thank you

    With what type of content is the server send the file?

    • Tools > Page Info > general

    If Firefox displays the file in a tab, then it is likely that the server sends the file as text/plain.

  • I set firefox to open a file type (.) SGF) w / a program, but it doesn't, so I put it to save/apply and no work option, it always opens file link in a new tab.

    I went into Options and set the. SGF with Smartgo open file. He refuses to do. Clicking on a link to one. SGF file simply open the file as a text in a new tab.

    Given that it did not work, I tried to get firefox to download instead, because then I can open it using the window file type associations. It will not download the file, unless I actually do a right-click and save-as in the link.

    It is tedious when displaying a lot of these files. I even put it to wonder after seeing the download option did not work. He don't ask me. What happens here?

    Also, I use firefox 23

    EDIT: It seems to be the specific Web site. Some sites will allow me the option to open it in Smartgo, others just it open in a tab in the form of text. What is causing this gap and can it be overcome thanks to the browser settings?

    A sample Web site to highlight the issue is:
    clicking on one of these links will not download, open, or ask questions about what you want to do with the file.

    What happens if the server sends the file as text/plain.
    You can see if you open "tools > Page Info > general": Content-Type: text/plain

    Sent files that this way is always open in a tab.

The file is in the file type, not JSON or HTML file, even though I didn't know it was a problem. Now, this computer has disappeared and I try to get my favorites on it but it won't work.

    What kind of backup do you have? A backup of the bookmarks Organizer or a backup using the program MozBackup?

    If you have used MozBackup, you must install it on the new computer to decode the backup. http://mozbackup.JasnaPaka.com/

    Since I installed the new version of Firefox (version 8.0), I download each file is downloaded as "attachment.ashx" and will not open. I need to change the name and the type of file to open the document.

    This happens regardless of whether I download e-mail, a Web site, etc... All the files I downloaded also have been appointed and had added of file types, but Firefox them changes every time. I've never had this problem before using the same sites and downloads.

    I have a problem when I download files from the executable (.exe) type. Previously, I checked the sign while Firefox will automatically download the file via the Download Manager.

    Firefox tools > Options > Applications is for downloads that are in need of an application to open. The executables are designed to run directly on the operating system rather than be opened by another application. In addition, executable files are generally sent from the server with a generic binary file header, so Firefox will not be able to match up to the top with a particular file type.
