Default Is there a way?

Is there a way to put a password on certain folders so you would need to type it in before accessing?

Right click on folder, sharing and security, make folder private, create password.

Ok what if you wanted to actually password just that folder. I've been wondering and i tried it and set a password but all the password was for was for my windows account. So if someone was in they could just open it. Is it possible just to password the folder and not your account?

Well when you said "what happens if the security thing is black" or something like that. If it's un-selectable, that means the folder is already private.

Thats probably because he is the only user account for that pc. He can get a folder guard protector, but that costs $
