Windows Configure Window 7 Folder Privileges

0 Comments

Unlike Windows XP, Windows 7 doesn’t automatically grant full access to directories and files if you log in as a system administrator. To gain control of a drive or directory and its contents you can perform the following steps:

  • Right-click on a drive or directory and select “Properties.”
  • Select the Security tab and then select the “Advanced” button.
  • Select the Owner tab and then select “Edit.” Click to highlight the user you want to assign ownership to. Make sure to check the check box “Replace owner on subcontainers and objects,” then select “Apply.”
  • Navigate back to the Security tab, click to highlight the same user and select “Edit.” Click to highlight the same user and assign the appropriate level of permissions using the check boxes (e.g., Full Control), then select “OK.”
