Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
It is sometimes necessary to protect files on your PC from potentially prying eyes. There are many programs out there that can do this to a more or lesser extent but I still prefer to use a good old fashioned protected zip file.
For this tutorial I will be using Winrar. You can do the same with 7zip and Win-zip , but the principle is the same. If you have trouble , add a comment to the tip and I will include it.
To download Winrar , CLICK HERE to go to the download site.
Now that you have Winrar installed , go to the folder where your files that you want to protect are stored. Select all the individual files you want to add to the archive by holding Ctrl and clicking on each file. Then , right click on any of the files and from the context menu , select "add to archive".
This will open the winrar archive menu.
