There may be times when you don't want others to see some of your data, especially if you're using a shared computer. So the question is how to store that data privately? Most of us says that it’s simple to hide that file from others, But it’s also simple for other to show that hidden file.

Here I comes up with a Interesting and effective solution that everyone don’t know. And the solution is to hide the file inside a image. Sound interesting?

The process is also very simple, and am gona telling you step by step:

1 – You must install winzip or winrar in your computer.

2 – Make a new folder where you wants to hide the file (it’s better to rename the folder without any space).

3 – Put the file you want to hide in this new folder (you can simple drag and drop or cut-paste the file into folder).

4 – Right click on the folder and select add to archive (then select your desire format between ZIP & RAR to compress) and hit OK.

5 – Choose a image in which you want to hide the archived folder.

6 – Open command prompt.

  • You can open it by pressing Windows logo + R key together and write CMD then hit ENTER key.
  • Type CMD in windows search bar and press ENTER key.

7 – As my file is on desktop so firstly I have to provide my desktop path in command promt-

cd desktop

type in command prompt if your file is on desktop otherwise provide your file path in command prompt.

8 – Now type this in CMD to hide your file inside a image

copy /b picturename.png + foldername.zip outputfilename.png

NOTE : make sure you type the extension name right.

Ex - .png for PNG file or .jpg for JPG file, same as image format carefully write archived folder extension Zip & Rar.

Now your file is successfully hidden in a image, if anyone open this image then he can only see the image not hidden file.

But the task is not complete here, there is no benefit of hiding a file when also you can’t see this. The recovery process is also very simple and easy then hiding process.

For recover the file open CMD and provide your file path as we done in above process. Then type :

            ren picturefilename.png outputfilename.zip

NOTE : make sure you type the extension name right.

Ex - .png for PNG file or .jpg for JPG file, same as image format carefully write archived folder extension Zip & Rar.
