					          Do you want to password protect your folder? Do you want to make it invisible so that it remains
    unnoticed by the normal users? Well here is a way to do that. In this post I will show you how to make a
    password protected folder in Windows without using any additional software. Here is is step by step
    procedure to create a password protected folder.


    Create a Password
    Protected Folder
    Step-1: Create a new folder (Right-click -> New -> Folder) and give it any name of your choice. For
    instance I name it as ABC.
    Step-2: Now in this folder place all the important files, documents or any folders that you want to password
    protect.
    Step-3: Now Right-click on this folder (ABC) and select the option Send To -> Compressed (zipped)
    Folder.
    Step-4: Now a new compressed zipped folder gets created next this folder (ABC) with the same name.
    Step-5: Double-click on this compressed zipped folder and you should see your original folder (ABC) here.
    Step-6: Now goto the File menu and select the option Add a password.
    ie: File -> Add a password


    Now a small window will pop up and here you can set your desired password. Once the password is set, the
    folder will ask for the password every time it is opened. Thus you have now created the password protected
    folder.



    How to make it Invisible?
    Step-1: Now Right-click on this password protected folder and select Properties.
    Step-2: At the bottom select the option Hidden and press OK. Now your folder gets invisible (hidden).
    Step-3: In order to unhide this folder go to My Computer – >Tools -> Folder options. Switch to View tab,
    scroll down and under Hidden files and folders you’ll see the following two options

              Do not show hidden files and folders

              Show hidden files and folders

    Now select the second option and press OK. Now the invisible folder becomes visible in it’s location. To
    access it you need the password. To make it invisible again repeat step -1 through step-3 and select the
    first option and click OK. Now the folder becomes invisible once again.
