Hi,
 
Tried to encrypt a folder to secure contents (Windows 10) but it isn't highlighted so can't click on it.  Does anybody know why and how to solve it please?


Moved to Win10

Hi Sleepy Dude and thank you for your response.  I didn't realise it wasn't available on my Windows 10 edition.  Is there a password download program that you can recommend that's free?

I know there are some software for that but I don't have experience with them sorry.

 

Probably others will shine with some ideas.
