    Default Can I use Bitlocker with Windows 10 to Encrypt individual Files?

    I'm new to Windows 10. Looking for an encryption tool, but see that Windows 10 already comes with encryption. I don't want to encrypt the entire drive, though. Does anyone know if I can encrypt individual files with Bitlocker? Looking at possibly using AES Crypt, if I can't use Bitlocker to encrypt individual files.

    No, you can't. It is meant for the entire Drive.

    But you can use the built-in EFS encryption system. Right-click the file or folder > Properties and use the Encrypt contents to secure data option.

    Or you may use Best File & Folder Encryption Software for Windows.
