I wonder if it's possible to password protect some files from "My Documents" working with Windows XP.
I am going to have 2 months holidays and let some friend of mine use my laptop, but I wanted to protect some private files.
Any ideas? Thank you!

go to tools Sep 21, 2003

Hi, first, open the file, then go to tools, choose options. From there go to security, make a password and retype it. and that is it.

Yes, it is possible. Sep 21, 2003

Go to "Save As". There is a "Tools" menu on this page. Click on it, it brings up various headings including "General Options". Click on this to bring up a page which gives you the option of entering a password.

Mueen, I've now tried your method too, and it works just as well as mine.
