  • Hi,

    I'm afraid you should NOT remove or hide "ProgramData" folder, for it is a kind of system folder and many application use it.

  • Hi,

    Show hidden folders and do what you want to do.

    Showing hidden folders/files depends on each user's [Folder option].
    Windows Explorer: left pane [This PC] -- tab [Computer] -- [Options] -- [Change folder and search options]
        

    Choose an option you want:
