Currently, you cannot hide root-level folders on your site from members who do
not have permission to access them.

For example, let's say you work in a school and want to create a new folder
just for teachers. You can create a custom role for teachers and use it to
restrict access to the folder. However, other members can still see the folder
on your site.

As a workaround, you can hide a folder by creating it as a subfolder inside a
folder with restricted access.

## To hide a folder from members without access permission:

1. Go to the File Share app on your live site.
2. Create a new folder.
3. Click the **Show more** icon next to the folder.
4. Click **Permissions**.
5. Click the drop-down on the right to set permissions for the folder.
6. Create the folder you want to hide inside this folder.
