WE START:

Welcome to another new post. This time, I come to show you how you can password protect a folder in Windows, without the need of having ANY PROGRAM, or anything like that. This way, they will not be able to see your contents and you will have everything safe. So let's get started!

How to password protect a folder in Windows

In order to successfully hide the folder, please follow the steps below:

1- Open the Windows Notepad.

2- Copy the following code that I leave you (you will go to my link shortener, and from there, to the text).

3- Paste it in the Notepad.

4- Now, place the text "CHANGE-THIS-TEXT-FOR-YOUR-PASSWORD", and replace it with the password you wish to enter.

4- Now, you're going to save that file with the extension ".bat"instead of the extension".txt“.

5- Open it. You will notice that it will create a folder called "Protected Folder". Put all your files that you want to hide inside it.

6- You will notice that it does not have a password. Well, run the program again. It will ask you if you want to hide it. Hit the "s", and press enter.

7- You will see that the folder will be hidden. How do I show it again? Simple: reopen the program. It will ask you to enter the password to view it again. When you do, the folder will reappear. READY!

How do I change the name of "Protected Folder" to something else?

To change the name, find the name "Protected Folder", and replace all those fields with another name. DO NOT PLACE ACCENTS OR SPACES AS ANOTHER NAME.
