MSW: General Tab/Attributes/Hidden?

by elavefenixvolando / July 5, 2010 12:38 PM PDT

Hello experts !

I would like to protect with a password my complete File where I have all my MSW documents. Not just one or two documents, not just a few documents but the whole file containing all of them, they are hundreds of MSW documents inside that file.

Is there any way to protect it with a password ?

I have been exploring the option "General Tab", "Attributes" and then I see two options: "Read only" and "Hidden", I suspect the "Hidden" option is for protecting the whole file but since I am not sure I don't want to click on it. Can you tell me please what is that option for ? and then also if I click on it how can I have access to it afterwards ?
Thanks again, all the best, Antonio.

much information regarding your computer it is pointless to offer specific instructions to accomplish your goal.

Assuming you are using any specific Operating System is pointless because the assumption might be incorrect.


Just above where you typed your Subject Title when making your post is a note in RED TEXT (to catch your attention) that was put there so we could offer specific rather than general suggestions. That note (in case you have some strange browser that does not render the note) reads as follows:

You have to help us help you so provide the info and don't use acronyms such as MSW that could mean several things - Master of Social Work documents are called MSW documents as are several other types including Microsoft Word Text files -
