VBS, or Visual Basic Script, is a type of file format used by Windows operating systems as well as by the Internet Explorer Web browser. You can edit a VBS file by using text editors such as Notepad and WordPad. Encrypting a VBS file can make it secure from unauthorised access. You can use a built-in encryption tool called the Windows Encrypting File System (EFS) to encrypt a VBS file.
