Create a hidden folder in Linux using terminal

Now let me discuss how to make a hidden folder in your Linux system using simple command. This can be considered as the application part of the previous blogs about handling files and folders.

open up command terminal :

step 1 : make a folder using mkdir command

     mkdir myfolder

step 2: Use mv command

     mv  myfolder  .myfolder


Enough there is a hidden folder created inside your home directory. You can also make existing folders with mv command as specified in step 2. You need to just change the folder name only :)
