## Why I can not open C:\Program Files\WindowsApps ?

Hello,

Can someone please explain me how to open C:\Program Files\WindowsApps to see it contents? *Huh

How do I fix "This access control entry is corrupt" ?

Thanks

:)

Hey x509,
IIRC ... it's not actually a corrupt entry, but a special permission/condition (Exists:WIN://SYSAPPID) for Users(Pc-Name\Users) and shouldn't be removed. If you must change permissions on the WindowsApps folder and/or sub folders/files .... I suggest you get familiar with ICACLS first and save the current WindowsApps Folder / Sub Folders / File permissions to a acl.txt file, so you can restore them in case you break something (which is very likely when messing with permissions)

ICACLS - iCacls - Modify Access Control List - Windows CMD - SS64.com
