I am hoping to encrypt a folder on windows 10. I have opened properties, general tab, advance option but the encrypt option is 'greyed out' . How can I get it to be available please?

Thank you for your response. I am using the Home edition which is why I am unable to use the encryption. Many thanks for your time. Ian

Seeing as Microsoft specifically says that BitLocker is not available in Win 10 Home, I'd be interested in exactly how you did that.
