Are you finding any tricks that lock or hide your folder without any tedious installation of software? Then your solution is in this post because today I will show you notepad trick which will work as Folder Locking Software.
Step By Step Solution:

1. Suppose you want to lock folder Ghoomar (It is folder Name) and path of it in My Computer F:\Ghoomar (It is example of path in my Hard Drive).

2. So now go to F:\ location (One back step of F:\Ghoomar).
3. Now open Notepad and copy following code and paste it in Notepad.

ren Ghoomar Ghoomar.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}
And name it lock.bat and save it to F:\ location.

Note: (Write your Folder name In place of Ghoomar)

4. Again open Notepad and Copy this code and paste it in Notepad:

ren Ghoomar.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D} Ghoomar

And name it key.bat and save it to F:\ location.

5. Now when you double click on lock.bat, it will lock your folder that my folder is Ghoomar and you will see icon of your folder like Show Desktop.

And when you click on locked folder it wills transfer you to control panel.
6. If you want to unlock it then double click on key.bat file and you will get again your same folder at position.
