HIDE A FOLDER IN MX PLAYER

What the problem is if your cousin/friend wants to use your mobile for 5-10 minutes then maybe you can’t refuse him. At the same time, you don’t want to share your personal videos with him/her. In this case, I use this function of MX Player called Show/Hide. Let’s see how this works.

  • Open MX player and select your folder.
  • Click on rename icon mx player rename icon to rename a file.
