Upon reading, I downloaded My Lockbox. It does not allow to lock "Documents" (see the attachment). How can I make it?

Try the roboform free edition: Password Manager, Form Filler, Password Management | RoboForm
It has excellent features ^^.
Btw, just wondering since you asked this question, can you configure windows vault, or windows credentials manager to store your passwords??

I would like the same thing as well. I want to click the folder and have password dialog box pop up for entering the password. I briefly tried this one
