    I have a windows 10 home edition laptop...was wondering why i cant encrypt the drive or any individual folders or files.

    Is this standard for home edition?

    I assume you are referring to BitLocker? Give this Technet a read, https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows/keep-secure/bitlocker-overview

    if it's grayed out, try going back to Disk Management and allocate that partition? and yeah, bit locker is only available on Windows Pro versions in my experience.
