For Windows 8.1 Pro, file and folder encryption works as describe here, but there is no Bitlocker...!

We all know the main reason for encryption - Dads of yesterday hiding their mags on the top of wardrobes etc. I don't even encrypt my text file called passwords- sometimes I even struggle to make sense of my instructions to recreate my passwords - and those who know me have no chance

You are wrong. I used bitlocker in windows 8.1 pro.
It's in control panel just like the way it is in windows 10.
It's home edition that doesn't have bitlocker

I stand corrected... Then the article title should have included Win 8.1 Pro and any other compatible OSs...!
