How to temporary erase file in Windows 7 with NTFS without pressing delete button

Weird thing in Windows 7 with NTFS, here is what I accidentally found: If you rename file and add in its end a dot, the file is temporary vanish!!

here is how it happened:

First go to file that you want to delete, in my case the file name is: “win7.ld”
Second: press F2 to rename the file

Windows will ask if you sure, and of-course you say YES!

Then Windows will not trust you and ask again, and again you will say YES!


The file as been vanish!!

But, if you want to go back, just press F5 (refresh) the the file will appear again…
