How to keep your files private

If you have some of your files that you don’t want others to open, you can protect them by assigning a password to them. This way, every time anyone tries to access it, he/she will be prompted to enter the password.

To make your file private, just right click on it > send to > compressed folder

Windows asks you whether to designate compressed folders as the application for handling zip files. Click ok. 

Now open the compressed file.
Go to file menu and click on add a password.

Enter the password for the file and click ok.

The next time you try to open that file you will be prompted to enter the password. You can delete the original uncompressed file. This way only you can open the file. You can use this procedure for password protecting your other files.
