    Virtual folders in Win 10 Home? 3rd party app?

    Any way to create virtual folders in Windows 10? I’m running the latest version of Win 10 Home. I want to create and use some virtual folders which will ‘’hold’’ (link) files from various other folders (directories). Any way to create these virtual folders? Any app for this? I did some googling and didn’t find anything. Thanks.

    Windows Mail and 3rd party messages


    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Please assist me with the following information related to this issue:

    • May I know what exactly do you mean when you say "download messages from 3rd party into Windows Mail"?
    • Are you referring to Mail app on Windows 10? If so, are you able to receive any send email via Mail app?

    If you are facing issues with Mail app, I suggest
    run the in-built Windows Store app troubleshooter and check. Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X..

    • Click on Control Panel.

    • Select Troubleshooting.

    • On the left pane, click on View All.

    • Click on Windows Store apps to run the troubleshooter.
    Let us know if the issue is resolved or if you require further assistance.

    Heads Up: Win 10 not recognizing 3rd party software registrations and interfering with passwords

    I've got a number of 3rd party software apps that I can no longer use because the previous Win 7 registration or activations are no longer recognized after my Win 10 OS update. I can probably get this fixed next week from the software suppliers themselves,
    even though it is a pain to have to contact and convince each individual developer that this is not a a new installation to a new PC or other device. I see that a number of other Win 10 updates have caused similar problems for other users.

    A bigger problem for me is that Win 10 is interfering with some of my existing software to recognize my security passwords established with Win 7. When I enter the correct existing password, the software now yields a warning that I have entered an incorrect
    password. Unfortunately it also fails to offer offer me the option to click on a "Forget Your Password" link or to reset a password.

    This failure to recognize my accurate passwords did not only affect 3rd party software, but also my PC User Account passwords. It took some professional help help to overcome the User Account password interference, but the 3rd party passwords are still an
    as-yet-unresolved set of problems. Any suggestions on how to get Win 10 out of the way here?

    3rd party software developers may have not yet created a Win 10 compatible version of their app, so beware if you depend on the frequent use of such password-protected software and plan to upgrade to Win 10. On the other hand, I have no clue why Win 10 would
    not accept my previous Win 7 User Account passwords.

    Virtual folders in Win 10 Home? 3rd party app?

    Password (or PIN) Protecting 3rd Party App in Windows 10

    Hi Pixelme ... great question, but unfortunately there is no way that Microsoft provides to password protect 3rd party apps.

    The only thing I can suggest is find out from the 3rd party app if they have that capability. So for your example with Kindle, contact Kindle and see if there is a way.

    It would be the 3rd party app that would develop that capability not Windows\Microsoft.

    Now you can use bitlocker which encrypts your drive if you are concerned with data being compromised if your machine gets lost or stolen.
