    Permissions issue with a User account


    I followed advice on a thread I posted and set up an account for my every day activities on Windows 10. It it just a local account and I used the instructions here.

    Everything is working well apart from I can't delete files in my Music folder!

    When I try to delete a file it says I need permission from DESKTOP-KH36HHO, which is the computer I'm using. Before I go to delete the folder I enter my admin pin number and it is accepted.

    Any ideas on what is happening here?

    :)

    User Accounts / Permissions Issue


    My PC shows only two user accounts, both designated as "Local Account, Administrator, Password Protected". One account (this is my "personal" account) has my name as user. The other account's user name is "Administrator". Neither account has full elevated permissions, which prevents me from managing many things I would like to control.

    I understand that an Administrator account with full permissions must be used in order to change a user from "Standard" to "Administrator".

    Regardless of how much research I have done and how many instructionsI have found on the Internet, nothing I have tried has worked to locate or create an Administrator with full permissions that would allow me to change my personal account to Administrator.

    I am hoping that you can walk me through the steps I need to follow so that I end up with full elevated permissions on my personal account.

    Thank you,

    Permissions issue with a User account

    User account permissions need resetting.


    I've converted my administrator account to a standard user account and created a new administrator account.

    As a standard user I am able to access the admins user folder which I should not be able to do. There must some issues with the permissions somewhere but I'm not sure how to go about troubleshooting it.
    @fdegrove has already suggested running an acl.bat as detailed here, post #39 Is a standard user account necessary for tight security and home user? - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums

    but it has not fixed my user permissions.

    Has anyone got any ideas?
