How can i use it to Encrypt my files
Simple: don't. Check to see if you have the openssl command installed.
If it's properly installed, you should be able to type "man enc" to get the parameters to "openssl enc".
For most stuff, you can use the Blowfish symmetric algorithm, it's very good.
From the examples:
openssl bf -e -a -salt -in file.txt -out file.bf
And to decrypt:
openssl bf -d -a -salt -in file.bf -out file.txt
Definitely poke around the man pages of openssl. It's a very complete set of utilities for encryption and digital signing. http://www.openssl.org/
