I have an folder named A. I just wanted a user can not be able to mouse click on this folder. It means
when user double click on folder A nothing should happen. (it should not open that folder).
When user right click on this folder no context menu should open.

What I have tried:

I tried changing registry entry but it applies at system level which i do not want.

Change the folder permissions - File and Folder Permissions[^]

What stops me using cmd or a third party file explorer to access the folder and do what I want? Trying to prevent access to things by manipulating the GUI is never the right solution and it always leaves workarounds. If you want to restrict access to a folder do it properly using authentication.

Thanks for your suggestion

I have all ready applied the ACL on the folder which provide all the security I just wanted to restrict user not to click on it even admin. If you have any solution to restrict any folder which user cannot read it in any way then it will be good.

Thanks in advance.
