  1. Lock win10 Desktrop Folders in place.


    How can I get the Win 10 desktop files to stay put where I want them without third party software?

    I want the folders locked to the location of my chosing unless i unlock them and move them myself.

    Not by theme

    Not by size

    Not i a row on one side of the screen.

    Where I want them.

    Until I choses to move them .

    Like on I could on a MAC for the last 20 years give or take.

    I have searched and this seems to be a huge issue for years.

    Im hoping by posting I will get up to date information.

    win 10

    version 19041.30

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Folder locked and dissapeared after unlock

    Well here's something i found on this:

    http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-475786-lost-my-files-in-folder-lock

    But it doesn't work here , i don't have that folder.

    Can somebody help me searching for a solution , tnx.

    EDIT:

    I did that and that's when the folder just disappeared but the data is still there, the program is very confusing about restoring files , it says that "files should become unlocked automatically" ... so where the heck are manual unlocking instructions.

    It's not an encrypt , it's just a password lock , so data is all open. The problem is, i would get like 225 GB of individual files off the HDD recovery , i just want the harder way of accessing the folder but getting the folder structure , where can i find the time to SORT 220 GB of data omg.
