    Folders - display of file properties wrecked by latest W10 update


    The latest W10 update has made all my folders have their files displaying a common list of properties, irrespective of file type, whether the folder is one for photos or music or video or documents.

    Now they all display like the last folder I have adjusted.

    What has happened?

    :)

  2. Files folders and storage

    Hi Peter,

    We need more information to be bale to help you better with this issue. Are you facing any issues when saving the word documents or when composing any documents?

    If the issue is with saving documents, where are you trying to save them and what is the error message displayed?

    I would suggest you to check if the users folder is displayed as "read only'. Open File Explorer, click on the driver where windows is installed, and open the users folder. Right click on the users folder, and then check in the general tab, if it is shown
    as 'read only'. If yes, I would suggest you to try these steps and check if the issue persists:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are

      located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child

      object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click

      Ok.

    Method 2:

    Check the Device status in the Device Manager. The yellow exclamation mark provides an indication of a device's current status and could mean that there is a system resource conflict, a driver issue, or any number of other

  4. Folders - display of file properties wrecked by latest W10 update

    Security tab in folder properties just disappeared

    Hi Nikola,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    • Is the issue specific to any particular file or folder?

    I suggest you to restore the Folder properties to default and check if it helps.

    Steps:-

    • Windows Key + E and click View.
    • Select Option and choose "Change folder and search options"
    • Go to View tab and Restore defaults.


    If you still face the issue, try running a System File Checker (SFC) Scan on the system and check if it helps.

    System file check is a utility built into the Operating System that will check for system file corruption the
    sfc /scannow command (System File Check) scans the integrity of all protected operating system files and replaces incorrect, corrupted, changed, or damaged versions with the correct versions where possible.

    I suggest you to try the steps provided, in the link below in order to run SFC scan on your computer.

    System file check (SFC) Scan and Repair System Files & DISM to fix things SFC cannot





    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
