TrueCrypt Icon

TrueCrypt is a free open-source disk encryption software for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. It allows one to create virtual encrypted disks files (known as a “container”) within normal files and access them as if it were real disks.

By default, assuming you have TrueCrypt installed, when you you double-click on a TrueCrypt container, the TrueCrypt GUI is launched. Then you have to select a drive and click on Mount to get the password prompt.

This tutorial will show how you can directly mount a TrueCrypt container by simply double-clicking on it, skipping straight to the password prompt on Windows.
