There are a lot of applications that uses the dot notation + application name to store it's data. This is common on *NIX systems but it's not recommended by FreeDesktopStandards, in fact they should use the
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME variable, which usually is mapped to
For instance is very common for an application
xyz to create in the current User default folder the following folder
~/.xyz to store it's data. I tried mapping
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME to the Windows equivalent variable (
%APPDATA%), but no luck.
So my question is, is there a way to definitely hide these dotted folders?
