Feature request: Hidden ventoy folder - Intervence - 10-06-2020

Hi! 
I have a suggestion: in general, ventoy folder on first partition is mostly for a theme customizations and usually not used daily. How about making it hidden out-of a box? Those who need customizations may read manual and find that folder and those sho don't need it, ...well they dont need it anyways.

For those who wish to hide it without damaging its functionality (at first i thought renaming it to .ventoy - that will not work)

Linux users
cd /your_flash_root_folder (e.g. /media/admin/ventoy)
echo ventoy > ./.hidden

Windows users
Just mark ventoy (and .hidden file if you did previous step) folder hidden in its properties. 
That's it. That will prevent ventoy folder to be accidently tampered while using flash drive
