Windows 10: How Can I Hide Users File From Other Users

    How Can I Hide Users File From Other Users


    Is there a way to create user files or folders that are not invisible to other users. Invisible to mean the other user see absolutely nothing to do with another user. Users in this case to mean Windows 10 "Standard User" Please note that if solution cannot be accomplished with Home edition, please note that in your reply --Thanks

    Here is an example. There are 2 user accounts on my computer, not including mine. The computer has a 2nd drive that I use for all my personal data. When I created a Standard User, that user apparently can see all my folders and files. They cannot open them but they can see the titles. I want to create an environment where each user only can see and manipulate those files and folders they create/own. Other than that the data drive would empty.

    If this is something you know about or dealt with I would very much like to hear your thoughts and a concrete and simple way to accomplish this.

    Again, thanks

    Right-click on the drive you wish to protect in File Explorer, click on Properties, then click on Security tab.
    Click the Edit button. Select the users/groups you wish to hide your files&folders from and uncheck the Allow boxes
    that grant them permissions to read/list files&folders/etc. Do NOT check the Deny boxes, or else you stand a good
    chance of locking yourself out.
