  • If you like to make a file or folder without naming it. Why would I create a folder which is nameless but yeah if you have some evil plans like wanting to show something to your family or friends.
  • Here the simple trick which enable you to create a nameless file or folder.
  • i.e., file or folder without a name in it.
  • Here’s the step to create it:
  • Just create a new folder and hold Alt key and type 255 on the number pad at the same time.
  • Your nameless folder is ready.


Another method:

  • Just create a new folder and hold Alt Key and type 0160 on the numpad at the same time.
  • Reason - This puts an ASCII code instead of typically qwerty keys or say that they are using the special character which resembles ’space’.
  • But if you wanted to create another nameless file or folder in the same directory?
  • For this you will have to rename the file or folder with 2 spaces.
  • Here’s the steps involve to get it work.
  1. Select file or folder and press F2.
  2. Hold Alt key and type 0160 from numpad.
  3. Release the Alt key, now without doing anything else; again hold Alt key and type 0160.
  4. Press enter and you will have second nameless file or folder in the same directory.
  5. Repeat step3 to create as many nameless file or folder in the same directory.
