How to Password Protect Files and Folders with Encryption in Windows – With hackers becoming more, and more sophisticated, most users are apprehensive about the safety of their personal data. There are many options available to forfend the user’s data but none comes proximate to encryption in terms of safety offered. This article contains some of the best and facile to utilize methods that sanction you to password forfend and encrypt consequential files and folders in Windows without spending anything.
How to Password Protect Files and Folders with Encryption in Windows
Encrypting Files in Windows using the Encrypting Files System (EFS):
Windows offers an inbuilt encryption method called EFS to protect sensitive data from unwanted users. EFS can be used only on hard drives formatted as NTFS and on professional and premium editions of Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows Vista or Windows XP. Home editions of Windows do not support this.
To encrypt files with EFS, follow these steps:-
- Right click on the file or folder you want to protect and click on Properties at the bottom of the menu.
- This will bring up the Properties window. In this window under the General tab, click on Advanced.
- In the Advanced attributes window, tick on Encrypt contents to secure data option.
- Click OK and Apply.
If the file is encrypted successfully, its name will generally be visible in green color.
If you encrypt files and folders with EFS, it would not change how you access those files and folders. You would still be able to read, modify and delete those files as long as you are logged into the user account that encrypted those files. However, other users from different user accounts would not be able to do this. For example, if you carry the encrypted file in a flash drive, you would not be able to access it from other computers. To access it from other computers, you will need your encryption key.
Make sure that you backup your encryption key when Windows prompts you to do so. It will be required in case you want to access the encrypted files from a different user account or from a different computer.
To back up your encryption key, click on the Back up now option in the pop up that comes when you first encrypt a file or folder. Then, click Next on the window titled Certificate Export Wizard. Enter a password for your certificate (make sure it is tough but also easy to remember), choose a location to save it, give it a name and click Finish.
In case Windows does not prompt you to back up your encryption key, you can back it up from the File Encryption Certificates manager. Since, EFS relies on your user account to give access to protected files, it is important to choose a strong password for your Windows user account.
EFS is relatively quick and hassle free but not totally secure as Windows stores an unencrypted version of protected files in the temporary folder (when you access them) which can be easily accessed by any experienced computer user. To overcome this weakness, ensure that you clean up your temporary files with the Disk Cleanup utility every time you access your protected files.
BitLocker is a Windows utility that allows you to encrypt hard drives and removable storage devices. BitLocker also uses EFS mentioned above with a minor difference. It encrypts the entire drive instead of encrypting individual files and folders.
With BitLocker too, you wouldn’t notice much difference while using your computer but if anyone else tries to access them on a different computer, he will be shown a screen asking the password. BitLocker To Go can be used to encrypt removable flash drives as well. BitLocker too depends on the safety of your Windows user account to ensure that files remain private. Hence, it is extremely important to use a strong Windows password.
BitLocker can be turned on in the Control Panel. BitLocker only works on devices having TPM. In case your PC does not have TPM, you will get an error saying “This device can’t use a Trusted Platform Module.” TPM is a special circuit that’s built onto the motherboards of BitLocker compatible computers.
BitLocker is only available on Professional editions of Windows.
7Zip is a free and open source compression utility that has the option of allowing users to create a password protected archive. The encryption offered by 7Zip is AES-256 (AES stands for Advanced Encryption Standard), which is virtually impossible to crack and used by everyone from giant tech companies to your next door IT expert.
7Zip can also allow you to encrypt the file names in the archive so that no one without the right password has a clue as to what is present inside the protected archive.
To encrypt files and folders with 7Zip, either create a new password protected archive from the 7Zip file manager or simply right click on the folder or file you want to protect and select “Add to archive” from the 7zip sub-menu.
You can choose either 7Zip’s .7z or .zip format. If you use .zip format, an additional encryption method called ZipCrypto is available, which is also good but not as secure as AES-256. Also, if you use a .zip archive, you cannot encrypt file names.
7Zip supports multiple platforms, is easy to use and also very fast when it comes to creating and extracting archives.

VeraCrypt is a fork of and successor to the extremely popular and discontinued encryption software TrueCrypt.
Like TrueCrypt, VeraCrypt is completely free and supports AES, Serpent and TwoFish encryption ciphers. VeraCrypt is simple to use and offers very fast encryption process. VeraCrypt also allows a single hidden volume to be created within another volume. The Windows version of VeraCrypt can be used to create and run a hidden encrypted operating system. The best part about this software is that its code is available for review and the developers claim an individual security audit is being planned.

- It is important to note that there are several tools and utilities available in the market that allow you to break encryption and passwords. The programs mentioned above will keep your data safe from a large majority of such tools but they, like all methods of encryption are not infallible.
- Even if you encrypt a file, it can still be deleted. So, be sure to back up your encrypted files.
- Make sure that you use a memorable password and keep your encryption key safe to prevent you from losing access to your encrypted files.
Keyboard Shortcuts In Premiere Pro
Use this handy list to reference keyboard shortcuts for Premiere Pro and even print a PDF of the keyboard shortcuts. You can also use the visual keyboard layout to customize the shortcuts and assign multiple shortcuts to a command.
Visual keyboard layout for assigning keyboard shortcuts
You can use the keyboard GUI to see which keys have been assigned and which are available for assignment. A tooltip reveals the full command name when you hover over a key in the Keyboard layout. When you select a modifier key on the keyboard layout, the keyboard displays all the shortcuts which require that modifier. You can also press the modifier key on the hardware keyboard to achieve this result.
When you select a key on the Keyboard Layout, you can view all the commands that are assigned to that unmodified key and all other modifier combinations.
- Premiere Pro detects the keyboard hardware and the appropriate keyboard layout is displayed accordingly.
- When Premiere Pro detects a non-supported keyboard, the default view is to display the U.S. English keyboard. By default, the Adobe Premiere Pro Default preset is displayed.
- When you change a shortcut, the preset pop-up menu gets changed to Custom. After you make the required changes, you can choose Save As to save the customized shortcut set as a preset.
- Keys shaded in purple are application-wide shortcuts.
- Keys shaded in green are panel-specific shortcuts.
- Keys shaded in both purple and green represent the panel commands that have been assigned to keys that also have an application command already assigned to them.
- Commands can be assigned for application shortcuts and command shortcuts.
- Application shortcuts function regardless of panel focus (with some exceptions) and panel shortcuts function only when the panel is in focus.
- Certain keyboard shortcuts work only in specific panels. This means that you can have more than once shortcut assigned to the same key. You can also make use of the pop-up window that shows only a certain batch of panel shortcuts (for example, only for the timeline).
- When a Panel Shortcut has the same assigned shortcut as an application Shortcut, the application shortcut does not function when that panel has focus.
- You can search for commands in the Command List, which is filtered by the search criteria. You can also assign shortcuts by clicking in the shortcut column and tapping keys on their keyboard to create the shortcut (including adding modifiers).
A warning indicating a shortcut conflict appears when:
- An application shortcut already in use by another application shortcut.
- A panel shortcut is already in use by another command in the same panel.
- A panel shortcut overrides an application shortcut when that panel has focus.
You can also click drag to assign commands to keys on the keyboard layout or the Key modifier list.
You can also assign shortcuts by dragging a command from the command List onto a key in the Keyboard Layout, or onto a modifier combination for the currently selected key displayed in the Key Modifier List. To assign a command to a key along with a modifier, hold down the modifiers during drag-and-drop.
When there is a conflict with a shortcut that is already in use with another command:
- A warning appears at the bottom of the editor
- Undo and Clear buttons in the lower right corner are enabled.
- The command in conflict is highlighted in blue, and clicking this automatically selects the command in the command list.
- This allows users to easily change the assignment for the conflicting command.
Use this instead of the ‘Go To‘ button used in former releases.
Many commands have keyboard shortcut equivalents, so you can complete tasks with minimal use of the mouse. You can also create or edit keyboard shortcuts.

- For a tool or button, hold the pointer over the tool or button until its tool tip appears. If available, the keyboard shortcut appears in the tool tip after the tool description.
- For menu commands, look for the keyboard shortcut at the right of the command.
- For the most-used keyboard shortcuts not shown in tool tips or on menus, see the tables in this article. For a complete list of default and current shortcuts, choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts (Windows) or Premiere Pro > Keyboard Shortcuts (Mac OS)
- Use the search field in the Keyboard Customization dialog box to find specific commands quickly.
You can set shortcuts to match shortcuts in other software you use. If other sets are available, you can choose them from the Set menu in the Keyboard Customization dialog box.
Repeat the procedure to enter as many shortcuts as you want. When you’re finished, click Save As, type a name for your Key Set, and click Save.
The operating system reserves some commands. You cannot reassign those commands to Premiere Pro. Also, you cannot assign the plus (+) and minus (-) keys on the numeric keypad because they are necessary for entering relative timecode values. You can assign the minus (–) key on the main keyboard, however.
Premiere Pro lets you quickly and easily sync keyboard shortcuts between computers using the Sync Settings feature. Using Sync Settings, you can upload the customized keyboard shortcuts from your computer to Creative Cloud. Then, you can sync the keyboard shortcuts from Creative Cloud to any other computer.
For more information, see Sync settings using Adobe Creative Cloud.
Keyboard shortcuts are synchronized for the same platform only, and not between Windows and Mac OS platforms. That is, keyboard shortcuts created for Windows only sync with a Windows computer. Mac OS keyboard shortcuts only sync with a Mac OS computer.
You can copy your customized keyboard shortcuts from one computer to another computer, or to another location on your computer.
The location of the customized keyboard shortcuts file depends on whether you’ve signed in to Creative Cloud Sync Settings in Premiere Pro or not.
Signed into Creative Cloud Sync Settings
- Win: Users\[user name]\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\[version]\Profile-CreativeCloud-\Win\
- Mac: Users/[user name]/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro/[version]/Profile-CreativeCloud-/Mac/
Signed out of Creative Cloud Sync Settings
- Win: Users\[user name]\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\[version]\Profile-username\Win\
- Mac: Users/[user name]/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro/[version]/Profile-username/Mac/
[version] can be 7.0 or 8.0
Copy the keyboard shortcuts (.kys) file and paste into the required file location.
To copy the keyboard shortcuts file to a location on a different computer, copy the .kys file to a removable drive, like a USB thumb drive. Then, copy the .kys file from the removable drive to the appropriate location in the new computer.
You can assign multiple keyboard shortcuts for a single command.
The Keyboard Shortcuts dialog displays the keyboard shortcut as an editable button, which lets you change, add multiple shortcuts, or delete shortcuts.
Add more shortcuts
To add more shortcuts to a command, click to the right of an existing shortcut. If there is no existing shortcut, click anywhere in the Shortcut column. A new shortcut button is created in which you can type the shortcut.
Edit a shortcut
To edit a shortcut, click the shortcut text in the Shortcuts column. The text is replaced with an editable button. Type the shortcut that you want to use. If the shortcut you type is already in use, an alert appears.
Many editors like to have a keyboard shortcuts document they can search and refer to. Premiere Pro offers a way to copy and paste keyboard shortcuts into a document, and then print. There are also pages in Help documentation that you can print, or save as a PDF.
Whether you are copy and pasting into a document, printing a PDF, or inspecting the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog box, it is important to note the available commands that are mappable to the keyboard. You can engage in a much more keyboard-driven workflow by adding new keyboard shortcuts.
You can paste the lists of keyboard shortcuts from the Keyboard Customization dialog box into a text document, like a spreadsheet, from which you can print. The advantage of the copy and pasting method is that you can view your customized keyboard shortcuts, as well. If you select Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, or Custom keyboard shortcuts, then those keyboard shortcuts are the ones that are printed.
- Do one of the following:
- Press Ctrl+Shift, and then choose Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts (Windows).
- Press Command+Shift, and then choose Premiere Pro > Keyboard Shortcuts (Mac OS).
- Click the Clipboard button.
- Start a new document in a text editor, or spreadsheet program.
- Paste the contents of the clipboard into the document.
- Save the document and then print it out.
Avoid Google Content Penalties While Creating Blog Posts
Avoid Google Content Penalties While Creating Blog Posts – With Google ever battling to provide the purest & informative content for its users, bloggers, and website owners must stay alive of the search algorithm updates. These steps will make sure that your site is unaffected from such updates, and it will secure your search rankings. Many individuals even use the technique of setting up many pages, each optimized for a unique long-tail keyword, even when many of the long tails they crave to rank for are related. We must take SEO to a more subtle stage. Being optimized will become unproductive as Google continues to refine its algorithm.
Avoid Google Content Penalties While Creating Blog Posts, Here Are Steps!
Step1: Know which search keywords you are targeting with your post or article. Collect related long-tail keywords that are worded in the same form. For example, they may have the same first two or three words and the last word is different.
Step2: Choose the keyword that you will optimize the post for. You might take the one with the most search volume or the best ratio of search volume to the competition. This part is up to you because you find how competitive your site is. Write them down.
Step3: Create a great authority article between 1000-2000 words as the minimal, optimizing for your main keyword but using all the related long-tail keywords. You are still optimizing the page for one chosen keyword just as before. You wish to create a long and informative post.
Step4: Use the alternative long-tail keywords, the ones you are not optimizing for, in your passage. They are so associated with your main keyword that you will have a great chance of ranking for them ever and avoid making multiple thin pages one for each keyword as many individuals are now doing. This avoids Google looking at these pages as redundant content but will rank you’re very full-page and stare at it. Use simple style so it makes sense. It must use the keywords in a natural, understandable manner. It cannot be keyword stuffing.
Step5: Make sure that this large post or article is well-structured and logically flowing. It encourages you to divide it into sections and subsections, using the Header tags. Breaking up your article into smaller well-defined chunks makes it easier to read and categorize.
Step6: Check your grammar, spelling, and proofread your work. Google knows enough to find poor syntax and spelling with poor quality pages. Taking the extra time will assure that your page avoids a low-quality score.

How To Print 3D Characters Designed In Autodesk Character Generator?
How To Print 3D Characters Designed In Autodesk Character Generator?
Here Is The Answer Just Follow The Instructions Below:
The cloud application Autodesk Character Generator (part of the M&E Collection; formerly Pinocchio) allows to export the designed 3D model of a figure (person) to the .fbx and .mb (for Maya) file formats.
The FBX format can be directly imported e.g. to Autodesk Fusion 360, so you can prepare 3D printing of the figure (e.g. for a desk game) in this CAD/CAM software.
First download the generated figure on the tab “Generated Characters”. For the export, use any of the FBX sub-formats. Please note that you will need cloud credits for exporting the model in higher resolutions (details), and for creating non-human beasts.
Then upload the FBX model to the data panel in Fusion 360 and open it in the Fusion editor.
In Fusion 360, you can then directly use 3D print, or you can export the model to the STL or OBJ formats. In the printing utility add the necessary supports and go ahead with printing.
The commercial license of the CG models allows also their use for 3D printing.
