tech - Batch file to execute when directory closed

Hi, What I have done is to place a batch file in a folder that when executed unhides a previously hidden sub-folder, using the command: attrib "foldername" -s -h

This makes navigation within the previously hidden sub-folder much easier than another method I saw online that just "starts" the sub-folder in a new window.

I would like to either add a snippet of code to the existing batch file that would wait until the sub-folder is exited and then re-hide it (using attrib "foldername" +s +h), or to create a second batch file that would be triggered by the sub-folder exit and then hide it (without having to manually execute it).

Is that possible?
