No matter if you are a student and having a fear that someone can see his/her files from college/school computer, So no need to worry about your personal files just follow this step by step guide to hiding your files from a public computer.
Do I need any software?
Yes, you need a free software called WinRar. (you can get easily a clean version of WinRAR from Google)
Step 1: Copy all your files to C:\Hide
Step 2: Search on the internet for a picture you like of course, a random picture. Save it to C:\Hide. Change the name to an easy one, like a picture.
Step 3: Open C:\Hide and select all your personal files, Right click > Add to Archive. All your personal files will be put in a Rar file. Now rename the Rar file to an easy one like Hide.rar
Step 4: Open the command prompt.
Execute this: cd C:\hide
Then this: copy /b nameofthepicture.jpg + Hide.rar nameofthepicture.jpg
If you did everything hide the command prompt should return:
1 File(s) Copied or something.
Step 5: What did we do?
We copied all our personal files into a picture. Now try opening the picture by double-clicking on it. It will open Windows Image viewer or something, so you will see the picture.
How to see your personal files?
Open WinRar from the start menu, and navigate the C:\hide and double click (in WinRar) on the picture.
