Although everyone wants to keep their files and information safe and secure, only some people’s PC runs the most recent version of Windows. Because of this, the engineers at KakaSoft produced LockDir, password protect a folder in windows 10 that works with Windows 10, as well as Windows 7, 8, XP, Vista, and 2000.
This means that you may benefit from the security that comes with password-protecting your files regardless of your Windows version. Let’s get into the specifics of how LockDir functions with these older Windows versions.
Install LockDir after downloading it: The first step is to download LockDir from the KakaSoft website and install it. The software will start downloading to your computer as soon as you click the “Download” button. Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation procedure, and then adhere to the directions displayed on the screen.
Launch the program: After the installation is finished, start the LockDir program. The primary interface will be displayed to you, and you may begin password-protecting your files.
Choosing the folder(s) to password-protect is as easy as clicking the “Add” button and choosing the folder(s) you want to secure. To secure more than one folder, repeat this procedure.
Create a strong password: You’ll be requested to create a password after choosing the folder(s). Pick a secure password that is simple for you to remember but challenging for others to decipher. Keep in mind that this password is the key to opening your secured files, so use a strong one!
After you’ve entered your password, click the “Lock” button to secure the folder(s) (s). Now that the folder(s) are password-protected, you must input the password to access the folder’s files (s).
Double-click the folder(s) to open them, then type the password to gain access to them. You will be able to access the files in the folder after the folder(s) have been unlocked (s).
