    Admin does not have full control Programs folder. Inheritance Greyed


    Win 10 Pro 10.0.19042 Build 19042

    I am trying to edit a file in Windows Program Files folder.

    I open file as Administrator, but it refuses to save changes.

    Looking online several suggestions seem to be related to Enable Inheritance (not sure if that is correct solution) - anyway.

    First Issue:
    Advanced Security shows 2 Administrators (see screenshot)

    1 Admin has full control of Programs File, 2nd Admin (I guess that is me) has Modify rights.

    Should I have 2 administrators - if I should have only one how to fix this.

    Second Issue:
    I select 2nd Admin and all buttons except View are greyed out (Including Enable Inheritance)
    When click View - everything is greyed out

    Suggestions please

    :)

    Inherit permission from the parent folder in Windows Server 2012R2

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that you want the child folder to inherit the permissions from the parent folder. You can try the following steps and check if that helps:

    1. Right click on the folder to which you want to provide permission.
    2. Click on Security tab.
    3. Click on Advanced.
    4. Click on Enable Inheritance and.
    5. Click on Apply and OK.

    If that doesn’t help, as you are using Windows Server 2012R2, I would suggest you to post your query in
    TechNet forums, where we have support professionals who
    are well equipped with the knowledge on Windows Server.

    Hope it helps.
