    I have Windows 10 Pro and when I installed it, I turned on BitLocker. I suspect that it might be causing problems with a program I use, so I want to disable BitLocker and see if it makes a difference. Can I do this? If so, how?

    BitLocker is in the Windows 10 Settings app and in the old Control Panel, but only in those versions of Windows that support it (Windows 10 Home does not).

    The easiest way to find it is to click the Start button and type “Manage BitLocker”. Click it in the search results.

    You can also press Windows+I to open the Settings app, click Update & Security and then select Device Encryption. Both of these methods can be used to enable or disable BitLocker.

    BitLocker should be transparent to software, so it is unlikely to be causing problems, but try it and see.
