Encrypt it

If you share your Windows computer with someone and have a folder or files you want to password-protect, there’s an easy way to do it with a built-in encryption tool. First select the folder or file you wish to encrypt, right-click on it and choose Properties. Now click the Advanced button and add a check beside “Encrypt contents to secure data” option. Click Apply and then Ok. To access this file you’ll type in your Windows password used to log into your account. If your version of Windows doesn’t offer this feature, there’s always the free TrueCrypt software.
