    Lightbulb How To Lock Your Private Folders

    I know many of people would not like other relatives or friends checking your private folders,very annoying some times.So i have created this thread so that next time you hide it and lock it so that your friends and family cannot open it and also make the folders invisible(Hidden) so they can not see it.

    How To Lock a Folder :-

    Step 1:- First Create A New Folder Where you want to put a password to it(Right Click -> New -> New Folder)

    Step 2:- Copy all Your Important or private stuff into the new folder created.

    Step 3:- Now Right Click on the new folder created ,you will find an option Compressed (zipped) Folder in the send to category. (Right Click -> Send To -> Compressed (zipped) Folder).

    Step 4:- A Compressed zipped folder gets created Next to the folder you have created.

    Step 5:- Open the compressed folder you have created.

    Step 6:- Now goto File menu and select Add a password.(File -> Add a password)

    Now You Can Type Your desired password and your folder will be locked.

    How To Hide The Folder:-

    Step 1:- Right click the folder you want to hide then Select Properties(Right Click -> Properties).

    Step 2:- At The End of the properties screen you can see an option called hidden,mark it and apply it.

    Now Your Folder is hidden

    Any Doubts please feel free to ask.
