Hello.  I went to save a text-file note in c:/ today, and Windows told me that I didn't have its permission to save a file there, and I would have to contact the Administrator.  Well, I am the Administrator.  How do I give myself permission to save a stupid file in my own stupid computer?

 

Thank you kindly.

The application you are using to save the file needs administrator priviledges. So if you are using notepad, you need to open notepad by right-clicking on it and pressing "Run as Administrator". From there you can open the text file you need (or write some text) and then save it to the root directory (C:/)
