I want to put a folder on my desktop with some private files in. Is there anyway I can put a password on it so other users of the computer cannot open it?Thanks
What O/S do you have?
Make your new folder then right click on it. Choose Sharing and Security then Make This Folder Private and follow the instructions.
I've tried that but it makes you do a password to actually logon, but I want others to be able to logon and use everthing but just not see that folder.
I think that is the only way you can do it in XP. There is software available to do what you want. Go to Google and do a search for something like "password protect folders"
Right click the folder, properties and put a tick in the hidden box
There is this it is only a trail version but should do what you want click hereRegards.
u should hve the optoin to put a password on the files u save. r u tlkin about programs or documents?
Documents and programs
I have win98se & have placed a password protected "Winzip" file into the Send To directory. So as such there is no visible folder, but I can securely add files by simply right clicking them & sending them to the "Zip File".Not sure if it feasable with XP though.
