Hi David,

Usually your files and folders are password protected by having your
user account password protected. This is limited though.

One method is to encrypt the file or folder. This will prevent any
other user account on the computer from opening it, while your user
account will be able to open like any other file or folder. You can see
how to do this in this tutorial.

Another method is to use a 3rd party ZIP program that will allow you to
compress the folder with password protection. (EX:WinZip)

Hope this helps,
Shawn
