How to Create a Folder without Any Name in Windows

Few days ago we saw how to Create a Folder with name CON in Windows. Today, we will see how to create blank folder names in Windows. I have used this trick earlier on Windows Vista and Windows 7 and it now also works on Windows 8.1 as well. I do not remember if it worked on Windows XP and earlier.

So you must be knowing that this is not possible to create a folder without any name or folder with blank name in Windows, But Here in this tutorial you will definately learn how to do it

Step  to create blank folder names in Windows 8/7

Example of folders without names:

Using this trick, you can display a folder without a name. There is one caveat however. Your computer needs to have a Numeric keyboard pad.

In case some of you do not know, Numeric keypad or NumPad is the section of the keyboard on the right side, which usually contains 17 keys, viz. 0 to 9, +, -, *, /, ., Num Lock and Enter keys. As most of us would have numpad on our keyboard or laptop, this should not be a concern. so let us proceed with the steps.
  • To create blank folder names in Windows 8.1, right-click on the Windows desktop and select New > Folder.
  • The folder will get created on the desktop.
  • If you right-click the folder, select Rename and enter only spaces,  the operating system will not accept it
  • To remove the name and display a blank name, right-click on the folder and select Rename. Now press the Alt key and from the Numeric keypad, press 0160.
  • Now press Enter or click anywhere on the desktop.
  • A folder with no name will be created. Change its icon and you could have a smart looking folder on your desktop.
