    Some scanned documents not visible in Public folders


    Both my wife and I have administrator accounts on our PC. If my wife scans a document and saves the file in the Public Documents folder, both she and I can read it. If I scan a document and save the file in the Public Documents folder, only I can read it. I thought that all documents in the Public folders were accessible by anyone with an account on that computer, but this is clearly not the case, as this example proves.


    On looking at Advanced Security Settings on the scan I created, the Principals are shown as SYSTEM, Administrators, and myself, and at the bottom of the screen Enable inheritance is shown. On looking at those same settings on the scan my wife has created, the Principals are shown as SYSTEM, Administrators, my wife, and myself, and at the bottom of the screen Disable inheritance is shown.


    I hope that this information may be enough for someone to be able to suggest a way of putting this right. Grateful for any suggestions.

    Windows version 1909

    Can't open scanned document in Public Documents folder


    My wife and I have administrator accounts on the same computer. I recently scanned a document and saved the scan in the Public Documents folder ( I have public folder sharing turned on). I can open the scanned document without a problem but when my wife tries to open it she receives the following comment: "It appears that you don't have permission to view this file. Check the permissions and try again." When I email the scanned document to her she can open it in the normal way. Is this normal or could it be something to do with the recent April update? Grateful for any advice.

  3. cannot find public documents folder in Windows 10

    Good day,

    On Windows Explorer in Windows 7, the 'Public Documents' folder is listed under 'Libraries\Documents'. The 'Public Documents' folder is not listed at all on the Navigation column in Windows 10.

    Is there a way to configure in Windows 10 to show Public Documents folder in the navigation column?

    Thank you.

    Scanned Documents File not visible

    Hi. My Scanned Documents file is not visible. Scanned Documents are being scanned into that location. And I can see the file along with the scanned documents in the pop up window once the documents are scanned but once I close that window I can no longer
    see it. I know the Scanned Document file location is located in my Documents File but it is invisible. Only way I can see this file location is to either scan a new document so that the Window pops up again or type the file location directly into the file
    explorer address bar but this is a pretty tedious method. I've any suggestions?
