Hi - first time poster here. I've searched & all the results show the same process on how to change registry permissions. But have not found anything on what to do if this process does not work. Hopefully someone can provide some guidance.
I’m trying to delete the Display key in the registry as outlined here.
I followed all the steps to change permissions & ran RegEdit as Administrator but had no success.
When I go to Advanced > Owner and select “Replace owner on subcontainers and objects” & click Apply, I get the following message:
““Registry Editor could not could not set owner on the key currently selected, or some of its subkeys.”
I click OK and proceed.
When I get to Advanced > Permissions and select “Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from the object” & click Apply, I get the same message.
When I’m done with trying to change permissions, I go back and right click on a key & try to delete it & get “Cannot delete DISPLAY: Error while deleting key”. Which is what I get before trying to change permissions.
I tried to delete just a single monitor and was successful so I figured that was the way to do it. But this only worked once & so far have not been able to duplicate it. So I’m back to going nowhere.
Any suggestions on what I’m doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
