How do you make folders on the computer that need a password to access
how do you make folders on the computer that need a password to access... like you cant just open it, it asks for a password to confirm your allowed to see the folder.
good idea, i need some of those too...if they do truly exist
You can make any folder in your user profile private. When you make a folder private, all of the files and folders it contains are private as well. Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders, Desktop, Start Menu, and Favorites.
im assuming that if someone logs on as admin, they can acces everything because its all shared on one drive anyway.
Open My Computer.
Double-click the drive where Windows is installed (usually drive (C:), unless you have more than one drive on your computer).
If the contents of the drive are hidden, under System Tasks, click Show the contents of this drive.
Double-click the Documents and Settings folder.
Double-click your user folder.
Right-click any folder in your user profile, and then click Properties.
On the Sharing tab, select the Make this folder private so that only I have access to it check box.
mine as well, that's the first thing I though. "How can I make folders with passwords so my mommy doesn't look at my porn"
just encrypt that so no one can find it except you, or zip it with winRar or w/e i forgot what it was
yeah you can zip it with winrar and set passwords
