    Unable to execute file due to permissions


    I signed in with an Administrator account in Windows 10 and I was trying to execute an exe file but I was unable to. So I tried to make changes to the security permission but it show a message that "You must have Read permissions to view the properties of this object" so I wasn't able to view anything. What is the solution for this?

    :)

  2. Unable to view transferred files due to permissions issue

    Hello,

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing in Windows regarding accessing the backup files. We will help you.

    How was the files backed up, using File history or Backup and Restore?

    This issue might have occurred due to lack of permissions set to the drive/ folder.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to set provide permission of the folders to users and check if it helps.

    Steps to give permissions to the drive:


    • Right-click on the folder which you’re unable to access and select
      Properties.

    • Click on Security tab and under
      Group or user names
      click on Edit.

    • Click on Add and type
      Everyone.

    • Click on Check names and then click
      OK.

    • Select Everyone and under
      Allow
      select Full control and click on
      Apply and Click Ok.

    For reference go through the below article:

    "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows
