  1. [HELP] I need permission from myself to delete Windows Apps.


    I had bought Forza horizon 4 on the Microsoft store app and had installed it under my E: drive. Every couple of months I wipe my computer partially, removing applications that did not come with Windows 10. This happens to include games, like Forza. Trying to reinstall Forza, I was not allowed to install the game in my E: drive. Pressing the install button does literally nothing. No sounds, no pop-ups, nothing. Despite having ~400GB available the game is roughly 90GB big I am simply not able to install it.


    Going on the forums, it was pointed out that the installation process was blocked because there is already a copy of Windows Apps was already on the disk. I tried to delete it but it said I needed permission from myself. After giving myself permission for the files within Windows app, it still throws up the same message:

    [HELP] I need permission from myself to delete Windows Apps. 82d0451e-b0bd-4175-ba7a-1e1a3c6f4505?upload=true.png

    I then decided to give myself Full Control over the Windows App folder itself, but it displays this:

    [HELP] I need permission from myself to delete Windows Apps. 3247a075-9fc6-40d6-a79c-1720054bda39?upload=true.png Note: this is one example. The text changes when I press continue, saying an error occured for like 20 other files.


    Going into the files, there is a small lock icon next to every item. Furthermore, it turns out that Forza is still technically on my computer, I just can't open it because access is denied.

    [HELP] I need permission from myself to delete Windows Apps. b5ac71df-543b-4993-811c-bca6585732a6?upload=true.png


    I am really lost.


    TLDR: I can't give myself permission to delete a file because "an error has occured". I can't re-install Forza because it is already technically installed, but I can't uninstall it because I don't have permission.

    :)

    Deleting contacts from Windows 10


    When you say Windows Mail Live are you referring to Mail app or Windows Live Mail?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.


    • Open Windows Live Mail.
    • Press Ctrl + 3 using your keyboard. Right-click on the contact to delete it if it is a single contact.
    • Highlight all contacts by pressing Ctrl + A.
    • Click Delete located on the Ribbon bar.
    • Click OK when you see the message These contacts will also be deleted from Hotmail, Messenger, and other Windows Live services.

    After following the steps above, all your contacts that you have manually added to your account will be deleted however, contacts coming from third-party sites such as Facebook will not be deleted unless you remove Facebook from your account.

    For Mail app:

    Open People app then delete the contact.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    App Permissions

    Hi Tony,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Some apps require certain permissions to work properly. However, you can change the permissions given to the apps by following the below steps:

    1. Click on Start.
    2. Click on Settings and then click on Privacy.
    3. Under the App Permissions you can change the permissions which are assigned for the apps.


    However, you can go through the
    Microsoft Privacy Statement
    .

    Hope it helps.

    [HELP] I need permission from myself to delete Windows Apps.

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
