    Encryption


    Now that I have Win 10 Pro I can encrypt files and folders. So I tried a test file. To my surprise it remains fully visible and copyable. I am the only user and I suppose the encryption password is my user password, so the encryption is transparent to me.

    Is it possible to select a different password so that anyone (including remote technicians, visitors, thieves) except me cannot view a file?

    :)
