Hence the simple reason this appears nameless because the folder is renamed into a single space.But if you want to create multiple folders without names in the same directory then you need to rename it to 2,3,4 or more spaces and so on by again typing in 0160 with alt pressed in.

Follow below steps to create multiple folders :

1. Select the file/folder you want to rename in same directory, and click rename or press F2.

2. Type in 0160 on the numpad by holding the Alt key.

3. Now release the Alt key and then again press Alt key and type i the same 0160 again to create double space name for the folder.

4. Now release the Alt key and press enter to see the second folder being named to 2 spaces without any names.

5. To create more folders of the same type, then follow these steps again to create names with 3 or 4 or more spaces sequentially.


Unfortunately there might be problem in deleting these files, so reboot your system and start in safe mode and then you will be able to delete these files/folders, this is the small bug in this stuff so hope you liked this trick and will surely share with all your friends.
