    You'll need to provide administrator permission to rename this folder


    I don't get it. I get this message from Win10 Home:

    "You'll need to provide administrator permission to rename this folder"

    but when I click the "continue" button, it does it anyway. This happens for various things in Win10. It pops up the messages for nothing since it does them anyway when I click "continue".

    Anyway to stop these annoying, useless Win10 pop up messages?

    :)

    how can i remove a non-breaking space on a folder

    Check the permissions on the folder.
    Also, are you signed on as the Administrator?

    no administrator permission

    Hi Ryan,

    Let us assist you to have an Administrator permission. To start, follow the steps below to enable the Windows Super Administrator Account.

    • Type CMD on the search box.
    • CMD will appear at top.
    • Right click on it, then choose Run as administrator.
    • Type this command & hit Enter: Net user administrator /active:yes.
    • After you enable the Super Administrator account, log out on your existing account then log into Super Administrator account.
    • On the Super Administrator account, you can now create an Administrator account or give Administrator permission on the existing account.

    After you created an Administrator account, we suggest that you disable the Super Administrator account by following the same steps and using this command:
    Net user administrator /active:no.

    Let us know how it goes.
