    Hi,
    Does anyone know how to password protect folders/files?
    A simple way plz :rolleyes:
    I tried to zipp the folder but cannot find the place where I am supposed to password it.
    I also tried hamdys version but cannot find properties where they are supposed to be.
    Johnwills version looked complicated :rolleyes:
    I am norwegian and a girl: keep it simple, guys :confused:

    Hello and welcome to TSG

    How to Set the My Documents Folder to Private
    To set the My Documents folder to Private: 1. On the Start menu, right-click My Documents, and then click Properties.
    2. Click the Sharing tab, and then click to select the Make this folder private so that only I have access to it check box.
    3. Click Apply, and then click OK.

    However have a look here for a program
