The first thing you should do is go into "Documents" and create a new folder. Name it whatever you like.
When you have done that, double-click on the folder and create a text document. This can be achieved by going into the contextual menu (right-click anywhere inside the folder -> New -> Text Document). Double-click on the text document and paste the following code into it:
cls @ECHO OFF title Folder Private if EXIST "HTG Locker" goto UNLOCK if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER :CONFIRM echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N) set/p "cho=>" if %cho%==Y goto LOCK if %cho%==y goto LOCK if %cho%==n goto END if %cho%==N goto END echo Invalid choice. goto CONFIRM :LOCK ren Private "HTG Locker" attrib +h +s "HTG Locker" echo Folder locked goto End :UNLOCK echo Enter password to unlock folder set/p "pass=>" if NOT %pass%== ENTER_PASSWORD goto FAIL attrib -h -s "HTG Locker" ren "HTG Locker" Private echo Folder Unlocked successfully goto End :FAIL echo Invalid password goto end :MDLOCKER md Private echo Private created successfully goto End :End
The next step is to change the ENTER_PASSWORD text to whatever you'd like your password to be. Don't use an easy-to-guess password.
Now we need to save the text document.
Click File and Click Save As.
NOTE: The text file must use the .bat extension. Therefore, I have named it Lock.bat and saved it.
When you have saved your batch file, you will need to delete the text document (.txt).
When you have deleted it, you may now double-click on your batch file. The first time you run the program, it will add a folder titled "Private". This is where you can store your documents to keep away from praying eyes. Go ahead and put some stuff in it now.
When you have finished adding your documents to the Private folder, double-click on locker.bat. You will now be prompted whether you wish to lock the document or not. Select "Y" to lock it. When you do this, you will notice that the Private folder quickly disappears.
When you double-click locker again, it will ask you to enter the password.
