Lock Unlock files or folders from a shortcut.

You can lock or unlock files or entire folders from shortcuts created on your desktop or elsewhere. The operation is exactly the same whether you access it directly or via a shortcut. It is not the shortcut that is locked, but the file or folder to which the shortcut points. The operation works in both locking or unlocking directions.

If you lock a file or folder with a shortcut, once that file or folder is locked, the shortcut no longer works until you unlock the file or folder again. Likewise if you unlock a file or a folder with a shortcut, the shortcut to the locked file no longer works. To be able to act in both directions using shortcuts from a location, two shortcuts must therefore be created; one to the unencrypted file or folder and another to the locked file.

In practice, shortcuts which point to locked files or folders located on the desktop are used. When you need to access a file or folder, you unlock it from its shortcut on the desktop and it opens in its location. If it is a folder, it is locked again directly from the Windows explorer window either directly in the list of folders by going up the tree or from the navigation pane of the explorer . Otherwise, you can use the function of locking all the protected files and folders opened either from the window of WinSesame accessible from the desktop and the menu start or from a shortcut to the command fermses See here .
