    Take Ownership folders and files


    Since I got the update for Windows 10 for 1809 version I need to take ownership for many folders and files I want to use.

    I could some help for this. I know there used to be some software that would do this for you. Does anyone know what software that would be and where to get it.

    I looked up how to get permissions and ownership in Google search and the instructions made no since to me.

    The first thing I wanted to do was add some images to Windows/Web/Wallpaper and it would not allow me to do this because I do not have permission as the folder is read only. How do I change that so it is NOT read only. For some reason and I am not sure why I can NOT take screenshot using Paintshop Pro 7 to show you what I mean. That is weird also, it had been working fine. Other place the screenshot works fine.

    I am assuming that if I have ownership of the folder it will NOT be read only?

    help please, thank you

    :)

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure

    Take Ownership folders and files

    Deleted Windows 10 Store's App Folder From "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps" Can I Get Back The Store

    Hi Shubham,

    I suggest you to try to take the ownership of the drive and check if it helps.

    To take ownership of a file or folder, follow these steps:


    • Press and hold the folder that you want to take ownership of, then tap
      Properties. (If you are using a mouse, right-click the folder, and then click
      Properties.)

    • Tap or click the Security tab, tap or click
      Advanced, then tap or click Change. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    • Type the name of the person that you want to give ownership to, and then click
      Check Names.
    Note: The account name for the person that you are assigning ownership to is displayed.


    • Click OK.

    • If you want this person to be the owner of the files and subfolders that are contained in this folder, select the
      Replace owner on sub containers and objects check box.

    • Click OK. Do let us know if you still get Access denied error. Thank you.
