    Hi

    Take a look at crypt keeper.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cryptkeeper
    Here is one guide of many.

    directories, not folders. "Folders" is the Windows terminology for directories.

    This link says after installing, go to Applications –> System Tools –> Cryptkeeper

    There is no "Applications" anywhere.
