But I didn't do any of these things.
I didn't do any of those things either.
Cleaning up "the mess" after my wank-a-thon
1. Move the movies you want to keep (and watch again and again) out of your download folder and into an innocuous folder where you keep other documents.
2. Delete the rest from your download folder, then empty the recycle bin. (Duh!)
3. Highlight all your videos, and right click on Properties. Make a check mark by Hidden and then click Apply and then Okay.
Wallaah! The files you marked hidden will be grayed out.
But click out of that folder and the next time someone opens the folder, those files will not be shown at all.
When you have some private time again you can just go in and reverse it. Just select show hidden files and folders and access those movies again. (But don't forget to clean up again when you're done!)
