This is my first post in these forums.  And this is the first web site I've ever joined to discuss and get help on computer issues. (I hope I'm doing this right.) 


I have word perfect and realize that I can password protect documents.  My question is, can you password protect a folder instead of having to individually protect each and every document in the folder? It would be easier if this were so.  I tried to figure this out myself but it doesn't look like this can be done.  I have Word on my Windows 10 Pro laptop but I'm unfamiliar with it and have been doing my word processing for years with word perfect. Any help would be appreciated.

What OS is the word perfect program on? If it is XP or newer you can install  Trucrypt from this link https://www.truecrypt71a.com/downloads/ and this will encrypt the entire drive (it is on-the-fly encryption which means the files are decrypted as they are accessed with no password, the Master password is entered before the PC boots to windows, so if you do not know that password then the PC will not boot and the files are encrypted, or you can use the openssl command line tool to encrypt a single file tutorial here http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2007/12/12/simple-file-encryption-with-openssl/... Many Anti Virus programs also include a password keeper which allows you to create a "safe" that you can store files in and you need to enter a password to access the safe
