set zip password

I want to show you us how to password protect a file using Winrar.

Some files you download from this site are password protected and this is the exact way I do it.

First download Winrar from their site using this link

After downloading the required setup according to your system architecture (64bit or 32bit(x86)), install the program.

Now locate the file/folder you want to protect with password,

Right-click on the file and click on add to archive

Select zip and click on set password 

enter anything you like as password and click ok.
