  1. user does not have access privileges


    Split from this thread about Office for Mac​


    Hi, Alex,


    I have the "user does not have access privileges" on two directories on my Windows 10 laptop, running 1809. 1903 has not rolled out to my laptop yet. I have worked with online techs. We reloaded OneDrive and synched. Still the same problem. I have the latest updates to Office 365. Is there a way to go into the registry and correct this issue? I've had 4 Microsoft techs work on this remotely with still no resolution. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Scheduled tasks run with elevated privileges can't access stored Windows credentials

    It seems that after Creators update scheduled tasks run with elevated privileges ('run with highest privileges' option) can't access stored Windows credentials. Is that a bug or an intentional change and is there a recommended workaround?

    Here's one way to reproduce the behaviour:

    • Start Credential Manger and add some Windows share credentials.
    • In a console window type 'cmdkey /list', which should list the added credentials
    • Create a task in a task manager:
      • Trigger: on user logon
      • Action: run cmd.exe
      • Tick the 'run with highest privileges' option
    • Reboot the machine and log in
    • In the console window (let's call it 'console 1') opened from the scheduled task type 'cmdkey /list'. This most likely won't display the credentials added in step 1 and properly listed in step 2. ->
      This looks like a bug
    • Now, without closing 'console 1' open another console window as an administrator (let's call it 'console 2') and type 'cmdkey /list'. This will properly list credentials added in step 1.
    • Switch to 'console 1' and type 'cmdkey /list' again. This time the credentials are listed properly, unlike in step 5. It looks like an access to Windows credentials was somehow 'unlocked' by step 6.

    I can't access my folder on the server at work


    I did something really stupid, apparently.

    In the list of users for a folder I need, it showed EVERYONE as having all access privileges (along with some other users too). I denied access to EVERYONE, thinking that the permissions for the other users would remain. It didn't. Now I can't access the folder, even as one of the other users or as an administrator.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you.

      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.
