  1. Open “Control Panel” and click on “BitLocker Drive Encryption”.
  2. If the BitLocker is off, it will be clearly shown on the screen.
  3. To enable BitLocker, click on “Turn On BitLocker” option.
  4. Set the “Unlock Option” you want for the drive.
  5. Wait for the process to be completed.
  6. Go to “My Computer” to see if it worked.
  7. The encrypted drive will have a lock icon on it.
  8. Double click on the drive to access the unlock screen.
  9. Enter the password that you set for the drive to access the content.

With these easy steps, you will be able to keep your data encrypted under lock and key. Have fun.
