I am trying to encrypt a zip file containing a csv and a text file.

I rt click on the zip file go to WinZip/Encrypt.
I enter a password and select Mask Password and 128-Bit AES
Then click OK.

How ever when I checked and tried to open the zip file it opens immediately without requesting the password
Can anyone see where I am going wrong please?
Many Thanks

    It will let you see the files and file names but you can't extract or view the files without a password
