  • Here is how to use winrar password:

    1. Install the latest version of WinRAR if you do not have it already. When installed, WinRAR should integrate into the Windows Explorer.
    2. Navigate to the folder and files that you want to archive. Select the files and folders to highlight them. Right-click on the highlighted area. Click "Add to archive." On the general settings page, choose "Best" under Compression Method.
    3. Click the "Advanced" tab. Click "Set password." Check the box next to "Show password." Type in the password of your choice. Write down the password if you are likely to forget it. Click "OK."
    4. Click "OK" back on the main window and wait for the files and folders to be archived.
