    Password Protect Folder


    Is there an easy way to password protect a folder on my laptop? I mean I've found some tedious instructions with creating a text file but they dont seem to work.

    Thanks

    Hi, it depends what you want, and how secure you want the outcome to be.

    Veracrypt (sort of successor to/replaces Truecrypt - which still works but has been retired) - free- creates an encrypted container into which you can move files when that container is mounted as a drive.

    Otherwise you can find a variety of programs simply by searching- you will need to check how secure these are.
