    Insufficient permissions


    HI

    I ]am having an issue with my computer. Whenever I try and move something on my desktop, save something, print to PDF or download I get an error "insufficient permissions". I am the administrator and the only person to use my computer, but it asks for administrator permission. What and why is this happening? Can someone please assist me in fixing this...

    Cheers

    :)
     

  2. I can't open pictures. Insufficient permission

    To take ownership of a file or folder, follow these steps:

    • Right click flash drive.
    • Click Properties.
    • Tap or click the Security tab.
    • Click Edit tab.
    • Add (user name you want to assign).
    • Select Full permission. If issue still persist, change the ownership in the permission.

    Let us know the result.

  3. INSUFFICIENT PERMISSIONS error message on Windows 10

    Original Title: raj

    AFTER DOWNLOADING WINDOWS 10, IAM NOT ABLE TO OPEN THE FILE - I NEED TO JUST OPEN THE FILE AND NOT TO SAVE WHEN EARLIER IN WINDOWS 7 I WAS JUST ABLE TO DOWNLOAD AND OPEN.

    ACTUALLY IT DIRECTLY WANTS TO SAVE THE FILE TO A PARTICULAR LOCATION - BUT AFTER SELECTING, IT JUST SHOWS AS INSUFFICIENT PERMISSIONS. ITS REALLY ANNOYING, WHERE IAM NOT ABLE TO DOWNLAD ANY FILE AND ALSO THE FILES WHICH ARE PASSWORD PROTECTED, THEY TOO ARE
    DIRECTLY GOING ON SAVING MODE, AND THEN IT SHOWS INSUFFICIENT PERMISSIONS.

    PLEASE ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO.

    I HAVE TRIED TO SAVE THE DOWNLOAD ON OTHER LOCATIONS TOO, BUT AGAIN IT SHOWS AS INSUFFICIENT PERMISSIONS.

  4. Insufficient permissions

    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.
