You have to change it from Token.env to just .env. only hides the .env file, not files with the extension, .env

@Vandesm14 That's cool - I knew you could do that on desktops but not on repl (put a . before for a hidden file).

If you're using a program with repl that reads/writes to a file anyway, it doesn't create the file to be opened - so that would be another way of using a hidden file on repl.
