  1. How to restore WindowsApps security permissions


    Hello, I recently was playing with settings and changed where new content is saved. I changed new apps will save to my D drive and then I wanted to change it back to my C drive. After changing it back to my C drive, I had to mess with the permissions to be able to delete the Windowsapps folder on my D drive. It seems that the permissions extended to the folder in my C drive though.


    I would like to know the default access for the Windowsapp folder. I did change the ownership back to TrustedInstaller but I am still able to delete the folder on the C drive and I do not want to be able to do that. Below is a screenshot of my windowsapp permissions. If someone could let me know to get it back to the default so I cannot delete the folder anymore, that would be appreciated. Thank you!

  3. Restore Security Permissions

    I wanted to change the security permissions of some folder, but I targeted my root D drive instead.

    I cancelled half way, but still; the majority of the files is affected and I want to revert my action.

    Please suggest me how to restore the security permissions to default, am using windows 10.

    Permission/Ownership Issues WindowsApps Folders...


    I have been tearing what little hair I have left out of my head trying to copy a file from my desktop to the appropriate folder in the Kodi folder buried in the XBMC… folder in Windowsapps in a brand-new fairly high-end laptop running Windows 10 Pro. I cannot get beyond first what appears to be a UAC “Destination Folder Access Denied” error message saying “You’ll need to provide administrative permission to copy to this folder.” If I click on the UAC “continue” button I get another “Destination Folder Access Denied” error box saying “You need permission to perform this action.” The second error box has only “Try Again” and “Cancel” buttons. Nothing is listed under “More details” in either error box.

    Here is most of what I have tried:


    1. changing ownership of Windowsapps and all folders below it to my Microsoft account user and granting full-control permissions to Windowsapps and all folders below it;
    2. changing ownership to administrators group for Windowsapps and all folders below it and granting full-control permissions to Windowsapps and all folders below it;
    3. enabling the “hidden” administrator account, going back to my Microsoft user account and granting full-control rights to the administrator account, returning to the administrator account, taking control with that account, granting full control permission to Windowsapps and all folders below it;
    4. creating a new administrator account and repeating 3;
    5. completely disabling UAC through the registry, once in the default administrator account and once in my Microsoft account user.
    6. adding and using the “Take Ownership” context option on a Windowsapps folder as described in the Tutorial at Add Take Ownership to Context Menu in Windows 10 ; and
    7. running the following commands in an administrator command window:

    Code:
    Code:
    takeown /f "%ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps" /a /r /d y   icacls "%ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps" /inheritance:r /grant:r Administrators:(OI)(CI)F /t /c 
    as suggested at: Permission/Ownership Issues WindowsApps Folders... - Windows 10 Forums
    In fact, even if I do an explicit copy from an administrator command window, I get an “access is denied” notice.

    None of the many sources I have looked at online are of any help in dealing with this blockage. Please help — not only do I need to get full-control access to Windowsapps and its subfolders for this purpose, I also need to get full-control permission to Windowsapps folders in order to get rid of an annoying McAffee startup.exe which pops an error box on every boot up even though I removed McAffee in the normal way.

    How can I get assured access to Windowsapps folders???
