    How to get permission to go anywhere in the GUI


    I have been trying to make a shortcut to (c:\users\'user name'\appdata). But I am stopped in the GUI and it won't show anything beyond (c:\users\'user name'\) If I use the administrative command prompt I can go straight to (c:\users\'user name'\appdata). But there is no way to extract info in gui form from there to the screen.
    So, how does one get permission to browse anywhere I want? I had no trouble in win 7.? *Sad

    Thanks in advance!



    :)

    No permissions

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to right click on the user's folder for your profile and check if the permissions shows as "read only'. If this is the case, it might be causing the issue. In this case, I would suggest you to go to C:\User folder, right click on the
    folder with your username and follow these steps:

    • 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.
    This does a one-time action that replaces the security on all the files/subfolders. It’s one-time, so you won’t find that box checked if you peek at it later. Try these steps and let us know the results for further assistance.

    Permission issue


    Presumably because TrustedInstaller is the owner (hence you need its permission), suggesting that img3.jpg was installed by Windows at some time.

    Presumably that also means it can be uninstalled. How did you get it in the first place? Where is it located?

    If you really want to delete it yourself, then taking ownership would seem a logical first step.
