How to add Encrypt or Decrypt item to right-click context menu in Windows 10/8/7


  1. This article can save a lot of time for readers by first telling them which Windows editions can encrypt and which ones cannot. For individual users who are likely using the “Home” edition, adding encryption to right click menu will be a complete waste of their time!

    I hope the author will consider this courtesy next time.

  2. I have followed the instructions and the encrypt option appears in the context menu. When I create a new file or folder however it is encrypted by default. Is there an option to make the default decrypted?
