    Restore user permissions for user folder


    Short story is i lost user permissions from the windows user (folder) I'm on and i need to restore them.

    I have windows 10 on a ssd nvme m.2 slot and another windows 10 installed on an hdd. I was on win 10 hdd and i accessed the user folder from win 10 ssd, it prompted me that i need permissions to see the contents of the folder and i accepted. After some minutes i disconnected the win 10 hdd from the pc and loged in on win10 ssd. My icons were replaced with blanks but i fixed that, the problems that i have left are that both firefox and chrome don't work correctly, firefox says that an instance is already open and can't launch, which is not true and chrome says I'm in incognito mode when trying to watch Netflix which is also not true. Another problem is that I can't change my desktop wallpaper because it says i dont have permission to the download folder.

    :)

  2. Removing a "hidden" user and user files

    Thanks for your patience. I was able with "Net User" to remove the left over user. It no longer appears when I invoke Net User.

    Now for the user's folder which remains behind. After performing the series of steps that you suggested, I attempted to delete this folder. The result again was an error message about permission
    Restore user permissions for user folder 1579d3b5-d6d3-4481-ad8c-0dae5f689a1a.jpg

    "Administrators" appears on the list in the list of advanced security.

    How do you Restore Windows 10 User Permissions to default?

    For Windows 10. I accidentally changed a user permission for my Documents folder. I am the administrator. The Security permission listed is for the homegroup users, but not System, Administrator or User (me). I
    can't change the permissions back because it tells me that I do not have access to certain folders. I did not have System Restore enabled. When I try to change the permission in the parent folder it still denies access for the one folder.

    Is there any way to reset all permissions to default for this folder?

    Restore user permissions for user folder

    Problem wth user folders - cannot delete the remnant folder

    Hi Marin,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to Make sure that all the files that you requires is transferred from the old user account. Then, take ownership of the main folder related to the old user and delete it. Follow the steps to take ownership


    • Select the file or folder which you need to provide
      full permission
      .

    • Now right click on that file or folder and click on
      Properties.

    • Click on the Security tab.

    • Click on the user account through which you are logged in.
      Clicking on the user will show you the permissions set for the user pertinent to the
      folder.

    • After you have viewed the permissions that are already set, you can now click on the
      Advanced Button that is right below the "Permissions for Authenticated Users".

    • Once you have clicked Advanced, a box would appear, the "Permission Entries" box, which shows all the
      permissions that are set for the users.

    • Now, after you have spotted the
      user
      whose permissions you wish to change, click "Change Permissions".

    • Click on the user you would like to
      edit, and then click the option that says "Change Permissions" which is
      right below the box. To change permission you have to click on
      edit.


    • Once edit is clicked, you are going to get the same box pop up but this time you can actually edit the options. You can do that by clicking the "Administrators" user
      again, and this time, you are going to click the "Edit" option.
    Also please let us know if you have made any changes to the location of picture and videos library.
    For the issue with Pictures and videos folder. as you are unable to open follow the steps below.

    • Right click on the Start button
      and click on File explorer.
    • Right click on the Picture folder and click on Restore previous version.
    • Follow the same steps for Video folder.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
