Opening a database in exclusive mode

Navigate to the database you'd like to encrypt and then click it once. Then, instead of just clicking the Open button, click the downward arrow icon to the right of the button, as shown in the image above. Choose "Open Exclusive" to open the database in exclusive mode.
