I have 1 folder on my computer that I want to make private. I want it inaccessible to anyone but myself. I know about setting up user id's etc., but don't want to do that as I'm the only one, usually, that uses my computers. I just want this one folder to be private. I want Windows to ask for a password to open this one particular folder.
Any ideas?

disregard........ I followed the instructions and have the folder compressed and the individual files password protected. Just wish there was a way to enter the password and open the whole folder, instead of having to enter the password for each individual file.
