    Change Permissions of Objects for Users and Groups in Windows 10


    There is one aspect of permissions I have not found an explanation for. There is a difference in behaviour for different categories of folder once permissions have been granted - some permissions have permanent effect whilst others need to be repeated at every access.Case 1 - I use my Admin status to give myself access permissions to another user's folders such as C:\Users\Winger\Documents. This new permission has permanent effect.
    Case 2 - I use my Admin status to give myself access permissions to, for example, C:\Program files or C:\Tools** and all their subfolders. This new permission has to be re-granted for each individual access.I cannot find the property that determines the difference in behaviour. Do you know anything about this?

    ** C:\Tools [owned by the Administrators group] is where I keep all my batch files, vbs files, vba add-ins, ... so the need for re-granting permissions every time is exactly what I want to protect the contents from unauthorised or accidental changes. It's just that I do not understand why it works.

  2. how do i gain access to special permissions?

    Where in the system are you trying to change permissions?

    The owner of the object controls how permissions are set on the object and to whom permissions are granted.

    The Take Ownership permission on an object or the Restore files and directories user right are the minimum requirements to complete this procedure. Review the details in "Additional considerations" in this topic.

    To take ownership of a file or folder

    Open File Explorer, and then locate the file or folder you want to take ownership of.

    Right-click the file or folder, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.

    Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

    Click Edit, and then do one of the following:

    To change the owner to a user or group that is not listed, click Other users and groups and, in Enter the object name to select (examples), type the name of the user or group, and then click OK.

    To change the owner to a user or group that is listed, in the Change owner to box, click the new owner.

    (Optional) To change the owner of all subcontainers and objects within the tree, select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.

    Where in the system is this folder located?

    If this is a system folder, you might get that error message?

    Change Permissions of Objects for Users and Groups in Windows 10

    Hello Denis, *Smile

    I haven't found it yet either other than having to manually change permissions afterwards.
