    Lowest practical user account permissions not family and not others.


    1909 build Pro with delayed updates that I will have to succumb to eventually I suppose ... currently up-to-date.
    Single user machine (me) at normal admin level.
    Wishing to create a new user account for my own use that has the lowest level of permissions that retains reasonable functionality.
    Should I just run with the standard lowest settings or is there a more 'polished' way?

    Planning to take this machine into a public environment where there may be "inquisitive" rather than malicious people that nevertheless could have a good knowledge of Windows messing.
    Planning to use some form of usb "machine lock" if I am logged into my admin account but in all other uses wish to have the most basic account to give a modest level of protection in case my gaze is averted/distracted.
    Already have admin/bios password enabled and will be applying bios settings to require this password for all boot methods (usb Linux for example).
    May also have a VeraCrypt external drive with usb key (usb hardware number matched to avoid simple pinch and copy).
    Must be able to demonstrate that I have taken "reasonable" steps to protect any private data on machine.
    Would prefer to avoid Bitlocker if possible but not ruling out any method.

    :)

    File permissions for another user

    Still no joy. Test User can still write to the file. *Sad
    This are the steps I have done;

    1. Created file in User account
    2. Copied file to Test User account
    3. Signed into Test User account
    4. Right click file
    5. Properties > Security > Edit > Add Test User > Allow Read > Deny Write > Advanced > Change Owner to Administrators > To Remove User account had to disable inheritance which removed all accounts except Test User and Administrator
    6. Test User can still write to the file!!

    Still stuck. Test User still has full control of the file, he can write, modify, cut, copy, paste in fact as if the permissions had not been changed. *Confused

    The change to of owner to Administrators and Deny all to Test User has not made any difference!

    User account permissions need resetting.

    Mine looks the same. I think my issue is in the sharing section of the user folders. As you can see under the sharing tab "everyone" has full access.
