password-protect a file
My os is windows vista home premium on a dell laptop. I'd like to know how to
create a password to protect a file. I know how to " zip " , but can't find
the option to create password. I had tried right click. properties, security
etc. to no avail. Thank you.

Re: password-protect a file
This open source (free) office suite (similar to MS Office) allows you to
password protect documents your create.

Re: password-protect a file
In MS Word
Require a password to open or modify a file
When you create a password, write it down and keep it in a secure place. If
you lose the password, you cannot open or gain access to the
password-protected document.

Open the file.
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click Security.
Do one of the following:
Create a password to open

In the Password to open box, type a password, and then click OK.
In the Reenter password to open box, type the password again, and then click
OK.
Create a password to modify
