My laptop has Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04 installed. During the installation of Windows 10 I created several partitions, so it was easy to install.
(Laptop got one SSD)

When I open explorer it shows several partitions:
C with Windows installed (NTFS)
D with Ubuntu installed (Ext4)
E home directory ( Ext4)
F shared directory (NTFS)

Is there a way to hide both partitions D and E in Windows 10/11?
Is there a way that makes it impossible to right-click and format the D and E partitions in Windows 10/11 ? (or an admin password is required?)

Just to prevent the user ;-)) from making a mistake.

If i'm not wrong if you create a partition you will be not able to access from one operating system to another. You have to boot in that partition to get access.

Sorry guys, for the late reply.
Thanks for the idea's, I will look into it. (Had some fight with Uefi bios and other installation issues, just need the mood to dig into this again)
