Protect Folder Without Any Software
STEP-1: Create a new folder (Right-click -> New -> Folder) and give it any name of your choice. For instance you name it as MSS.

STEP-2:  Now place all the important files, documents or any other folder in this folder that you want to password protect.

STEP-3: Now Right-click on this folder (MSS) and select the option Send To -> Compressed (zipped) Folder.

STEP-4: Now a new compressed zipped folder gets created next to folder (MSS) with the same name.

STEP-5: Double-click on this compressed zipped folder and you should see your original folder (MSS) there.

STEP-6: Now go to the File menu and select the option Add a password. ie: File -> Add a password
