    Windows update changing settings on my computer without permission


    I am so appalled with Windows 10. How dare you automatically install updates without my permission and completely change all my settings so that my computer is now almost unusable. The keyboard layout has been competely altered, I cannot find anything or write at any speed which is needed for my work. I had it set up the way I wanted. Now I have tried deleting all languages but one and nothing works. So sick of this arrogance and complete incompetence. As soon as I can Windows is being replaced. Why did you do this, it makes zero sense.

    To turn off windows updates in windows 7 follow these steps:

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
    then in the option bar select 'Never check for updates'.

  3. how to change folder and file permissions in windows 10

    Hi David,



    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    • Are you trying to give permission to particular files and folders?
    I suggest you to follow the below step and check if it helps.

    • Once you choose the file that you want to give permission, right click on it.
    • Click on properties and go to security tab, check whether any permission have been set.
    • After you have viewed the permissions that are already set, you can now click on the Advanced Button that is right below the "Permissions for Authenticated Users"
    • Once you have clicked Advanced, a box like this should appear, the "Permission Entries" box, which shows all the permissions that are set for the users. Now, after you have spotted the user whose permissions you wish to change, click "Change Permissions.
    • Click on the user you would like to edit, and then click the option that says "Change Permissions" which is right below the box.
    • Once that is clicked, you are going to get the same box pop up, but this time, you can actually edit the options. You do that by clicking the "Administrators" user again, and this time, you are going to click the "Edit" option.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
