Hi Emmy. Open up an Explorer window, go to Tools, Folder Options, View tab, and scroll right to the bottom of the page. Uncheck the Simple file sharing option and restart your PC. Whenever you right click a folder/file, you will now get the comprehensive security list (SACL-Security Access Control List) that will allow you to individually set access control for anyone accessing that folder/file.
