How to password protect a folder on Windows 10

Although Windows 10 doesn’t have the option to protect folders and files with a password, it doesn’t mean your data isn’t secure. One of the reasons why you can’t apply a password to a folder is that your account is already protected from unauthorized access with a password (and even encryption if you use BitLocker).

However, if you have priceless pictures, bank information, and other business documents you feel would be more secure using a password, you can use a combination of a virtual hard disk and BitLocker to password-protect folders and files. And you can do this without third-party tools or complicated scripts, which are probably not as secure as using the Windows 10 built-in encryption feature.
