    Greetings from South Dakota!

    Question: Is there any way that I can password protect an individual folder on my desktop? For example " I would like to prevent other users from seeing sensitive files etc. "

    Thanks as alway's!

    Nick

    Provided you are using ntfs, just right click on the folder > properties > security. Set options from there as to who get access to the folder.
