> Lock Windows Folder

Do you store Personal files on a general resource, like your Office or your friends PC? Do you always worry about your privacy?
Then I'm sure you'd always be thinking about protecting the Personal content from unwated eyes.

There are many softwares that people use to lock or hide their Personal files. But here is a trick that can safely lock all your files or folders without any external softwares. Heres how you can do it.

Lets say, you wish to lock a folder named "Personal" in C:\ drive such that the folder path is C:\Personal

In the C:\ drive create a text file and type

ren Personal Personal.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

Now save this text file as Lock.bat.

Now create one more text file and type

ren Personal.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} Personal

Save this text file as Key.bat

Now you will see 2 batch files Lock.bat and Key.bat.

Opening Lock.bat will change your Personal folder to a Control Panel icon and will redirect you there. You will not be able to view the folder content.

Opening Key.bat will revert the changes and you'll see the original folder again.

Try it yourself :)

1) Once you create the 2 batch files, keep the Key.bat in a separate folder so no one can use it.
2) Even if you lose the file, you can recreate the same, if you know the name of your Hidden Folder.
3) If you wish to hide multiple folders, you can use the same batch file. Just insert a new line and repeat the code. Each line represents a new Folder name.
