  1. Parent permission error


    I’ve struggled with Microsoft for a while now because they changed a lot of things. I’m attempting to download the Xbox app and every time it tells me to ask for a parents permission. Thing is, there is nobody to ask because there is nobody in my family on Microsoft. Yes, I have an adult account so I don’t understand why this is happening. Anyways, in the end it always tells me that an error occurred and I can’t get past it. Please help!

    :)

    Inherit permission from the parent folder in Windows Server 2012R2

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that you want the child folder to inherit the permissions from the parent folder. You can try the following steps and check if that helps:

    1. Right click on the folder to which you want to provide permission.
    2. Click on Security tab.
    3. Click on Advanced.
    4. Click on Enable Inheritance and.
    5. Click on Apply and OK.

    If that doesn’t help, as you are using Windows Server 2012R2, I would suggest you to post your query in
    TechNet forums, where we have support professionals who
    are well equipped with the knowledge on Windows Server.

    Hope it helps.

    CHANGED THINGS , LIKE WHAT STATE I AIM IN AND SO ON, ANYWAY I WENT TO THE PERMISSIONS TO SEE WHO HAS PERMISSIONS TO DO THIS, I CAME ACROSS A SET OF #S LISTED UNDER USERS IN THE USER ,GROUPS SELECTION BOX, I TRIED TO CHANGE THOSE PERMISSIONS BUT IT SAID I COULD
