  9. If I have a folder with many pictures inside, and I want the folder locked, NOT the individual pictures to be locked.
    I want to type in password to access to inside the folder, but it’s too much work to be having to enter password in order to view each picture. That’s what 7zip and WinRAR seems to do.
    I don’t know how to set it otherwise, or if that’s even possible.
    Help please?
    Nope it doesn’t work Paul, thanks though.
    I’ve also tried highlighting all and right click to “view file”, doesn’t work either.
