lock a folder or file without any software

We keep our files and folder in our computer. We have some personal folders which we don’t want show anyone. We want to keep the folder hide from others. Then we use some kind of hiding software. But we are not happy with this because of license key, registration, complex function which we don’t understand. For this reason I will show you a tip. You never have to install software for hiding a file or folders.
There is no need to license key, no Registration problem. Just create a folder and hide everything with a password.
