Make A Folder Private In Windows XP

There is a way to keep people who use your PC from viewing your files: You can make every folder under My Documents private--meaning only you can access these folders and their contents. Anyone else is denied access. To make your My Documents folder private:

1. Right-click My Documents and then click Properties.
2. Click the Sharing tab and select the Do Not Share This Folder checkbox.
3. Click OK.

Now all your folders and files are private. If you don't need this much privacy, you don't have to protect everything. You can simply follow the steps above to make individual folders private instead.
