I have never used VeraCrypt before so I feel a little silly asking this, but how do you view an encrypted file? All the beginner tutorials on VeraCrypt appear to be for creating encrypted disks. I can find nothing about viewing encrypted files on a flash drive.

I received a flash drive with an encrypted file. I have the password. I just need instructions on how to view the file using VeraCrypt. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Thanks for your help.

well, my reaction would be to ask the one I got the stick from, but anyway:

you start VC "select file", you choose a mount point (in windows a drive letter), klick "mount" and provide the password.
