    password protect MS Word

    Is it possible to password protect the entire MS Word folder with Windows 98? I can protect each individual file, but this is very time consuming. I was hoping there was a way to protect access to the entire folder. I am not asking about a network situation. Just asking about protecting access on my computer directly from the computer keyboard.

    Re: password protect MS Word

    Hi David
    Many encryption programs will do what you ask. The one I use, if you click on a Folder, it encrypts every file inside it without further action, though you can then open the folder and see the file list.
    I would suggest you pop over to my website and click the button labelled 'Encryption'

    Re: password protect MS Word

    I'd suggest Magic Folders for the job. There is no native function win Windows 98 that will do it for you. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>
