.I used to get that message frequently,when I had 8.1. I think its a security feature,so app sand folders cant be changed without you approving it.

 

Anyway, the answer is yes

Oh forgot to mention, if I click on YES the item just goes back to where it was, or, in the case of a picture from online where I use Save Image As, it just disappears.  Have to save to the desktop first.

If I save an image from the Internet, Firefox saves it into the file I choose automatically

 

Depending on what I am saving. If its a MN Viking picture it saves it in my VKG file

 

If I am saving a car image it saves it into the car file

 

What happens to me is, if I try moving multiple files, a box pops up asking if as administrator, its OK to move the files. I click yes and it moves them.

 

Do you have Administrator Privileges?

You need to changer permission of folder and files so you can edit or change setting of windows. Login your PC as administrative user and change permission for folder and files.

Set specific permission to edit, read, and write for files and folders

  1. Right-click the file or folder, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.

  2.       Click Advanced, and then click the Owner tab.

  3.       Click Edit, and then do one of the following:

 ·         To change the owner to a user or group that is not listed, click Other users and groups and, in Enter the object name to select (examples), type the name of the user or group, and then click OK.

  ·         To change the owner to a user or group that is listed, in the Change owner to box, click the new owner.

  4.       If you want to take ownership of the contents of the folder, select the Replace owner on sub containers and objects check box.

  5.       Click OK, and then click Yes when you receive the following message:

          You do not have permission to read the contents of directory folder name. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control?

          All permissions will be replaced if you click Yes.

Note folder name is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of.

  6.       Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and its contents.
