I am the system administrator and I am logged into an administrator account. I would like to copy a file from one folder to another but I am getting the following message:

"You require permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file"

Why does this happen and how do I resolve this?

Also, without the Start Button, how do I open a second Windows Explorer window?

Thanks for this Classic Shell program. I solves my second problem but still does not give me the administrator permission I need.

I have the Pro version but I do not have the take ownership option there. My account is an administrator acccount but to make changes to the system in many programs they make me restart the program by right clicking on the program and selecting run as administrator.

I have a question for you because this has happened to me also. When you get this message do you get an option to  "continue?"

 

I click on "continue" and it does what I want it to do. Just asking. The only times I have had to take ownership of files is when I try to run music files from an extenal HDD which I ported over from ANOTHER Win 8 machine. It seems Win 8 automatically asigns DRM to those files you DL using Win 8. Then it's a long and complicated process which ticks me off.

 

Also, if you already have an Explorer window open you can just click on "file" then "open new window" to get another Explorer window open. Or just use Classic Shell. :wink:

I found an easy way to take ownership of folders and it actually gave me that "Take Ownership" option in the context menu when I click on a folder. It works on most folders, seems like there were a couple it wouldn't, but for the most part, it works great

 

It involves running a registry modification program so I hope it is ok that I post a link to it, if not, I won't be offended if a mod removes this.

 

It is called Add Take Ownership.reg and can be found at.....
