    Unable to Save to Documents


    I can't move, copy or save anything to my Documents folder. I checked the properties of the folder, under serurity it listed only Home Users and WMP Network Svc. My account name is listed in the srcurity tabs of Pictures, Music, etc., and I am able to save, copy and move to those folders. My account is listed in C:/Windows/Users/myname/Documents under the security tab. How do I add my name to the Documents folder in File Explorer? I think that should fix my problem.

    In a not so critical glitch, my computer will not go to sleep using the power settings in the control panel.

    :)

    Unable to Save to Documents Folder

    I was able to removed Everyone from the Users Doc folder, so it now lists only SYSTEM, My MA and Administrators. Still can't save to the Documents folder in File Explorer.

    Unable to Save to Documents Folder

    Which Documents folder? When I go to the Advanced Security screen on the folder in File Explorer, there is no Add button. On the Advanced screen, who is listed as the owner? Mine has the long numerical sequence listed above as the owner and I can't
    change it to my MA. If I try to remove EVERYONE from the Doc folder under users, then I can't add my MA.
