Open My Computer. | | 2.. Double-click the drive where Windows is installed (usually drive | (C:), | | unless you have more than one drive on your computer). | | If the contents of the drive are hidden, under System Tasks, click Show | the | | contents of this drive. | | | | 3.. Double-click the Documents and Settings folder. | | 4.. Double-click your user folder. | | 5.. Right-click any folder in your user profile, and then click | Properties. | | 6.. On the Sharing tab, select the Make this folder private so that only | I | | have access to it check box. | | Notes | | | | a.. To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer. | | b.. This option is only available for folders included in your user | profile. | | Folders in your user profile include My Documents and its subfolders, | Desktop, | | Start Menu, Cookies, and Favorites. If you do not make these folders | private, | | they are available to everyone who uses your computer. | | c.. When you make a folder private, all of its subfolders are private as | well. | | For example, when you make My Documents private, you also make My Music | and My | | Pictures private. When you share a folder, you also share all of its | subfolders | | unless you make them private. | | d.. You cannot make your folders private if your drive is not formatted | as | | NTFS.
