In windows, I wish there was a simple way to password-protect a folder. I would right-click a folder and the context menu would allow me to assign (or remove) a password to open a folder. Subsequently, whenever anyone tries to open the folder, they would need to enter a password.
Also, password entry would be bypassed in cases of moving a folder to another location on the drive, or when copying or backing up the folder.
Finally, if the folder is copied or moved, the password protection would still remain (as part of the folder's properties). So if someone copies the folder (e.g. for nefarious reasons) they still couldn't access the files without the password.
I'm a budget manager in a hospital and I have numerous confidential files on my desktop and would like to have a way of adding a layer of protection.
Thank you very much for your consideration of my request!
