    creating hidden folder/files via 8900

    Advertisement



    I have a few users that would like to create folders on their BB's and make them hidden, but i just tried it on my 8900 and the "hidden" toggle in the folder options is greyed out.

    Can you not create a hidden folder via your device?? It's not practical to have to hook up to a pc in order to perform functions the BB ought to be able to do anyways.

    and a side question....what are the shortcut keys for page up and page down when in a folder? 3 and 9 don't work and space bar goes down, but what goes back up? scrolling can be a nieusance.


    Thanks!!

    I've been trying since yŇuposted and I'm gonna say you can't from the device. I use filelock to lock files I'm not interested in sharing.
    I'd provide the link, but when I do on wap something always gets screwed. Try jerryd's version tracker, believe that's where I got it.

    I'm not sure on the 8900 about hiding files and folders. I can do it on my 8330 via the device so I would assume on the newer models you could still do this. Will be interesting to find out.

    Founf it, in thread here on the stacks. Be sure to read post, you have to set permissions correctly or you'll be forced to press ok to lock every file within a folder instead of locking just the folder.
    Hope link works for you.

    Like Cowboy said, creating and hiding folders on the 8330 works fine, i did it on theirs yesterday eve, but you can't do it on the 8900 device??

    i really don't want to have to dl an app to do something similar, something that the device should be able to do natively.

    Jeff, i'm trying to create them on the memory card as to not use up more of the device memory.

    Thanks for the help everyone!!

    I've still been trying. Simply can't figure it out. Can create folders with the native explore or bbfile scout, but the only thing I can hide are pictures, and individually at that, not whole folder
