How to Lock & Hide Folders on a Windows Laptop Without an Application

Gadgets have privacy that you want to hide on your laptop? Gadgets must try to hide folders on laptops based on the following Windows operating systems.
For some people, including me, it feels uncomfortable if our privacy is spread out. Moreover, only because of trivial things, such as lending a laptop to friends, family, or coworkers.
Privacy is a thing that many people worry about in using devices such as computers. From security to confidentiality, factors related to privacy are always considered to be very important.
Although privacy is simple, for most people privacy is everything. Therefore, most people will try desperately so that their privacy is not spread.
Even to protect his personal secrets, some people use two different accounts to protect their data. Or even those users are afraid to lend their favorite laptop devices to others, especially to people who cannot be trusted.
In response to this, the gadget does not need to worry. If the gadget has a lot of personal data stored on the laptop, the gadget can actually lock and hide it.
There is no need for special tools or applications to store our privacy in depth, Gadgets only need to use the Notepad application that has been installed directly when we install Windows.
Notepad is a Windows system default application, which can be used for several things related to a text editor. In my opinion, this application is included in a very lightweight application to use, but it is very powerful including to edit some program command codes, such as files with [dot] bat extension.
The file extension [dot] bat or batch file is a text file that contains several series of commands that will be executed by the command interpreter. Simply put, a batch file can be said to be a collection of command lines that can be run by a system running Windows.
Then, how do I lock a folder on a laptop with a Windows operating system?

    if EXIST "HTG Locker" goto UNLOCK 
    if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER 
    :CONFIRM 
    echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N) 
    set/p "cho=>" 
    if %cho%==Y goto LOCK 
    if %cho%==y goto LOCK 
    if %cho%==n goto END 
    if %cho%==N goto END 
    echo Invalid choice. 
    goto CONFIRM 
    :LOCK 
    ren Private "HTG Locker" 
    attrib +h +s "HTG Locker" 
    echo Folder locked 
    goto End 
    :UNLOCK 
    echo Enter password to unlock folder 
    set/p "pass=>" 
    if NOT %pass%== PASSWORD goto FAIL 
    attrib -h -s "HTG Locker" 
    ren "HTG Locker" Private

    :MDLOCKER 
    md Private 
    echo Private created successfully 
    goto End 
    :End
  3. Replace the PASSWORD with the password you want to use
  4. Save the file using File> Save As . Change Save as Type to All Files (".") . Give the file name by writing the file name ending with ".bat" in the File name. For example I will save with the name Secret , then fill in the File name with Secret.bat
  5. For the storage location, please navigate to a specific folder
  6. When finished, click Save
  7. Open the folder where you saved the batch file, then double-click on the file extension .bat
  8. A new folder will automatically appear with the name Private. In this folder you can move files that will be locked and hidden
  9. If so, double click on the batch file
  10. If an agreement appears "Are you sure you want to lock the folder (Y / N)", click the y and enter button
  11. The Private folder will disappear
  12. To open it, double-click on the same batch file
  13. Type the password used, and click enter
  14. Automatically, the missing folder will reappear
What if you forgets the password used? No need to worry,  only needs to right-click on the batch file, then select edit. Look for the if NOT% pass% == password for your goto FAIL and change your password with the new password.
