    How do you get folders to hide? A lot of homebrew requires to be stationed in the root.
    I'm saying does it work to just marka folder as hidden on my computer and then it won't show up in my card? Sorry if im being vague, i don't have my DS.

    CLOSE PLEASE

    Yes, if it's marked as hidden then you shouldn't be able to see it in the main menu.

    It works here, just set the folder as hidden under Windows or hide it using the "DSOrganize" homebrew and you're done!

    in windows:

    in any explorer window, click on the "TOOLS" menu, then select "FOLDER OPTIONS".

    in the dialogue that pops up, select the "VIEW" tab

    in the list you now see, there should be an option entitled "HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS", select "SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS", press apply and close the window again.

    you should now be able to see your normal files and folders, but also hidden files and folders will show up with a faded icon.

    you can now right click on the hidden folder and simply uncheck "HIDDEN"
