The steps for protecting a folder with a password in the windows XP operating system are as indicated below. Note that in case you are using a single account for all users on that particular computer, then the process may be a bit different.

  1. The first step will be to select the folder that you wish to encrypt.
  2. And then you will right-click on the folder and then click on Properties.
  3. You will then click on the Advanced button.
  4. And then you will check the "Encrypt contents to secure data" option.
  5. Once you have finished all that, you will then click Apply, and then Ok.

As simple as that, you will have protected your folder in windows XP with a password.
