    ADMIN Permission to access USERS folder


    I am the Administrator of this computer but why won't windows 10 allow me to access users file folder? Getting confused. How do I get permission to open the USERS folder? By the way I'm using the NETWORK to access my other computers.

    :)

    how an administrator can give permission to access folders

    Hi John,

    To provide user/s an access to folders, see the steps below on how to do so:

    • Right-click on the folder > Security.
    • Under the Group or user names option, click on the username that you want to have an access to the folder; then, click on Edit.
    • It will show you the page of permissions which you can allow or deny.
    • Choose your desired permissions and click on OK.

    Let us know what happens after following the steps given.

    Error Access Denied while acessing the folders from User> AppData folders on Windows 10

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with access files and folders.

    Do let us know the complete error code/ error message of this issue?

    As you have tried with providing the permissions to each folder and issue persists after the restart, try the below and check if it helps.

    Step 1: Try to disable the third party anti-virus software if installed any and check.

    Step 2: As, as a work around, I suggest you to enable the built-in administrator account and check if this issue persists.

    Steps to enable Built-in administrator.

      • Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.
      • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open Command Prompt.
      • Type the following command and hit Enter:
    • net user administrator /active: yes (Check for the spaces)
       4. Now log off from the current user and try to login to the administrator account that is enabled.  

    Note: Please follow the same steps and type net user administrator /active: no to disable admin account after the troubleshooting is done. 

    Step 3: I suggest you to refer to the below Microsoft article with 3-diffrent issues related to accessing the files and folders and check if it helps.

    "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue to assist you further.

    ADMIN Permission to access USERS folder

    Windows reports "You don't currently have permission to access this folder".

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft community. I understand the inconvenience caused to you. Let me help you.






    • Does this happen only with a specific folder/file location?


    This problem results when an administrator, the owner of the file or folder, or a user with the Change Permissions permission for a file or Full Control permission for a folder, changes the access control list (ACL) on the file or folder. Some of the
    changes that could deny a user access to a file or folder they should be able to access include:

    • The user or group was unintentionally removed from Group or User names on the file's or folder's Security tab.





    • An explicit Deny has mistakenly been applied to the user or group.





    • A conflict between share permissions and NTFS permissions was created when someone changes permissions without examining both types of permissions.



    Method 1:

    Let’s give permission to the folder and check if that helps. Follow these steps to give permissions to the drive.

    a) Right-click on the folder which you’re unable to access and select Properties.

    b) Click on ‘Security’ tab and under ‘Group or user names’ click on ‘Edit’.

    c) Click on ‘Add’ and type ‘everyone’.

    d) Click on ‘Check names’ and then click ‘OK’.

    e) Select ‘everyone’ and under ‘Allow’ select
    ‘Full control’ and click on ‘Apply’ and Click ‘Ok’.





    Method 2:

    I would suggest you to try the steps in the article and check if it helps.

    "Access Denied" or other errors when accessing or working with files and folders in Windows

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2623670

    (Try the steps for Windows 8 as it is applicable to Windows 10 as well.)



    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us with more information and we’d be happy to help.
