Hidden share will not show the publicly, we can view only through \\servername\sharename$. Here I have mentioned how to create a hiden share.
Open the computer managent à click start button à then Run à type the command compmgmt.msc à then click OK.
Now the computer management will open.
Now navigate the shared folders from the computer management, then right click choose new file share.

 Now create a folder on any drive, the folder name should end with $ symbol.

and then click next , add your description about share in.

Then assign the permission for your needs.

Then click next then finish. The above hidden share creation is used for logon and logoff reports.
