  • Or if you want to hide the Folder option from document library New Button, Navigate to your document library, click Docuemnt Library Settings -> Under General Settings, click Advanced Settings, In Advanced Settings page, under Folders section, select "No" to Display "New Folder" command on the New menu?. By default this setting is set to Yes.

    Hope this helps..

  • What do you mean "hide"? If you need show documents without folders you can switch it in "Current View" Modify this View ->Folders->Show all items without folders.

  • Hi Henk

    you can hide document library or folder inside using sharpoint manager 2007

    try this

    http://spm.codeplex.com/releases/view/22762

    browse to the document library through spm2007 and set property Hidden to True .

     

    Cheers

    If person doesn't have the right of document library then he will not see that document library link. Can you please explain this in detail what you exactly want to do?
