IDEA: App to hide certain file extensions
« on: March 31, 2010, 07:15:58 AM »
Hello everyone~

I use Minilyrics, and the lrc files in the music folder get on my nerves so I hide them manually. It'd be nice to have a program that does this automatically.

You just want an app/script that will set the hidden attribute for .lrc files?

You can use a simple batch file for this.  Change the path to what you want and save it as "something.bat".  Then simply run it as needed.

attrib +H c:\path\to\folder\*.lrc /S

Thanks for your help =] I'm afraid that I'm a n00b when it comes to this.

You're welcome.  Were you able to make it work from my post above?
