How to create password protected document locker in windows
We have some important files and folders on our PC. We don’t want these files and folders to be seen by others. It becomes more important when you share the computer with others. This can be done very easily following the procedure given below. I am using Windows 10 Pro but it works on other windows editions also-
Create a folder on your desk top.
To create the folder right click on your desk top
Hover over new
Click on folder.
Give a name to the new folder. For example name it as “Protection”.
Open the folder by double clicking the icon of the “Protection” folder.
Here you have to create a text file.
To open a new text document, right click your mouse, hover over “New” and choose “Text Document”
A new text document will be created.
Open it by double clicking on “New text document”
Here you have to paste the following code. Please copy and paste the code given below now.
Delete the text in red and write your password in place of it.( Your-Password-Here)
Now save the file. Please note that the File is to be saved as batch(.bat) file.
To save the file click on file in the menu and click ‘Save as…”.
Give name to the file, for example “Document password” and add the extension “.bat”
( Note-If you want to choose a different name, first replace this text “Document password” in the code with the name you want to give to the .bat file. This is in line number three on top of the code.)
Select all files from the menu in the bottom of the document and save it.
Now you have created a windows batch file.
Now come back to your desk top.
Open the folder “Protection” by double clicking on it and then open the file “Document password” by double clicking.
