Solved how to deny access to a file on a Mac

September 20, 2012 at 07:10:25
Specs: Macintosh
I have an Apple desktop computer and I want to stop anyone opening particular a file (preferably the whole file in my Documents folder, but I could deny access to individual documents within that file if easier). The file/individual documents won't let me right-click to find any options. All I have managed to find under Tools is Protect Document but that just makes it Read Only etc. when I don't want anyone to read it at all!

Any easy help appreciated - I am not very computer savvy!

Yikes, that looked complicated but actually fairly straightforward! Thank you for taking the time to reply.

The only trouble is, I don't have a problem with people accessing all my stuff which they do as they know my password, it is only the odd document (well ok, one file) that I would like to password protect (with a different password obviously). It doesn't seem to allow me to do that.

Any simple way to do this? Thanks.
