    Unable to set restriction for local user in Windows 10

    Hi,



    I realized your concern and will assist you to resolve the issue.


    • How did you noticed that user is still able to access the drive?

    • Did you log into the local user account and check the permission?
    I suggest you to follow the steps below to restrict the user.

    • In File Explorer, right click on the drive which you want to restrict.
    • Click Properties.
    • Click the Security tab.
    • Click on Edit to change the permissions.
    • Uncheck all the permission for system.
    • Click OK and make sure the change is applied to all subfolders and files.


    Your reply is very important for us to ensure a proper resolution. Please get back to us with the above information in order to assist you accordingly.

    Thanks and regards.

  3. Need some restriction of my standard user in my PC

    The easiest way to restrict a standard user from accessing the files of another user account is by ensuring that the files are saved to the
    C:\Users\<AdministratorUsername> folder or the %userprofiles% folder. If a standard user attempts to access the files from the said folder, by default, it would instantly prompt for the administrator's credentials in order
    to access it.

    If you wish to put restrictions on a specific file, you may follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the specific file and choose Properties.
    • Choose Security tab.
    • Click Edit.
    • Choose Add.
    • Type the username, click Check Name and then, hit
      OK.
    • You can now manage the restrictions for the user profile, under Permissions for <username>.
    If you wanted to set a restriction on the Local Drive, follow these steps:

    • Double-click This PC.
    • Right-click on Local Disk (CWhat to restrict application for user to use :).
    • Choose Properties.
    • Select Security tab.
    • Click Edit.
    • Choose Add.
    • Type the username, click Check Name and then, hit OK.
    • Set the level of restriction for the said drive.
    Should you need further assistance, feel free to get back to us.

  4. What to restrict application for user to use

    Installing Applications to Select User Accounts

    Hi Lucas,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are trying to avoid the access of all the application in all users. We will help you try resolving this issue.

    I suggest you to check while installing any software it gives an option to install on all users or any particular user only.

    However this would be application specific to manufacturer.

    You can try following the below steps also and check if it helps.

    • When you install the software or an application, it makes a shortcut or copy to the public folder where all the users can access the application.
    • Open C:\ Drive and select Users.
    • Select Public, select the files which you don't want to be used by other users and delete the files or Cut and paste in Admin account folder.
    Note: To perform this steps be logged into Admin user.

    Keep us posted to help you better.
