Hide files in Pentaho User Console

Hello Friends,

There are situations when you need to hide the files generated by Pentaho.
Pentaho by default generates three types of files to be displayed in Pentaho User console:

.cda - The data access file, which is of no use to business user
.cdfde - Framework File, again of no use to be business user
.wcdf - Dashboard file, which you most likely need to keep
Use case: When you give a multiple dashboards to business user, he should be able to see only the dashboard files. Something like the image below:

To achieve this go as admin -> browse files -> select a file -> click on properties -> hidden

To show the hidden files, go as admin, click on Menu-> show hidden files as show:
