Hello,

i want to hide all files on my windows 7 system that have the file extension .dcm. Does any one know how this can be achieved without manually selecting all files with that extension and marking them as hidden.

It need to be applied to all files and sub directories in the my documents folder

Have you tried this from the command line?

ATTRIB +H "C:\Users\username\Documents\*.dcm" /S
