    How do I stop requiring admin permission? Tried all the usual steps.


    I just got a fresh Windows 10 install, and I'm trying to make it so that I don't have to get administrator permission to move/delete/etc. files and folders in Program Files and whatnot.

    Since I'm neither an imbecile nor lazy, I've of course spent a lot of time already Googling this. The problem with all the usual proposed solutions is that they seem to be designed for people who just want to override permission requirements on a case-by-case basis. What I want is to never ever have to provide administrator permission on anything.

    My user account is already an administrator.

    I have already disabled UAC.

    I have tried right-clicking my entire C: drive, going to Properties>Security>Advanced>Change [Owner]>Advanced>[Select my username]>Okay>check "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects", but the problem with this approach is that it causes an error message for every single file in use (which I'm guessing is in the thousands), which states "An error occurred when applying security information to [file] ...The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.". I then have to click "continue" for it to proceed to the next file. I am not prepared to do this for presumably thousands upon thousands of in-use files just to be able to interact with my own files without being forced to ask permission from... myself.

    On my old Windows 7 system I never had to deal with this nonsense. I could delete, move, modify files in any system folder without annoying prompts. Alas, I forget how I set that up (I know it's not like that out of the box) because it was so long ago.

    Can anyone help me wrest control of my own computer without having to ask for permission from myself?

    :)

    PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??
