I cannot edit a folder when I've used "Take Ownership" and I've made sure in the Security tab that I have full control, I still get "You need permission to preform this action" when trying to move stuff in the folder. What could be wrong?
I found that my two Windows 8.1 laptops will not copy the entire contents of any folder to my Iomega network drive. Only the folder alone is copied and none of the sub-folders or individual files. I can copy individual files separately, but not the whole folder sub-folder, and files together. I have no problem doing this with my Windows 7 desktop PCs. My network drive is connected directly to my Apple Airport Base Station router.
There was a Metro app that I installed that I liked the functionality of but didn't like the fonts for; I knew where the configuration was to change the appearance (a CSS file in the C:Program FilesWindowsApps<app name> directory),
but when I tried to modify the file, it kept giving me an "Access is denied." error without any extra information.
I tried changing the ownership of the apps folder to my own account; didn't work. Changed the ownership of that specific file, and all the other files within that folder; still not allowed. I went into the PowerShell as administrator and tried copying or renaming the file; still "Access is denied." and nothing else.
Is there a way to make this file editable, or is the access blocked on a system level? I just want to change a few fonts around, but if Microsoft is trying to prevent me from doing so in order to protect its walled garden, then I'm afraid I'm going to have to give up on Windows 8.
So i running 1080 off i7 4770 internal graphics and there content cut off from my screen. It looks like someone zoomed in my screen and know i can't see a lot of my stuff. I can just barley see my toolbar. Half of my icons are to far to the left see them. If i snap something to the top of my screen i can see all my tabs. This just happened because for a little while because i switched from a graphics to my internal graphics. How do you fix something like this. For a picture i look like this
display panel does't seem to fix it and the controllers on my monitors don't work.
Using Livemail in Windows 8.1 for no apparent reason the content of all messages in one or more storage folders will disappear. The message header is OK, but the contents of all messages in that particular folder are identical. It seems to occur only when I drag a new message from the inbox or sent box into the storage folder. And not every time.
I have tried restores the message contents. Clearly the WLM storage file is messed up - is there any way to restore or recover it?
Okay, so I have been surfing the internet and it is said you can change your Microsoft Games avatar through the Games app....They said it works in 8 and 8.1. Yet I have not found the button "Edit Avatar" in the Games app.
Here is a screenshot of where I was told I would be :
My previous OS was Windows 7 64-bit. I used rip my favorite music tracks and was able to edit the details in the Details tab of the Properties window after right-clicking on the file name. The system hardware is the same. OS is now Windows 8 64-bit. But when I open the mp3 file's property window and go to the details tab, I get fewer options in detail and I CANNOT edit any one of them. I have run sfc - no problem. I have opened the Explorer as Administrator and still the same issue. Here's the screen capture:
I am the sole user of the desktop PC. And that I have another PC at another place with same configuration also running Win 8 64-bit. On that PC for the same file I see more details on the screen and I can edit the fields. I might post the capture from that PC later when I go there. I also ran the mp3Tag to get over the possible issue with ID3 tags.
So I use a program called crashplan to back up all my data, but the program began crashing whenever I open it. I would open it, the program would bgin running for a few seconds to a minute then just go away, close with no message.
SO I emailed crashplan and they told me to do this:
It appears that the CrashPlan backup engine is running out of memory. Please follow the instructions below to allocate more memory to the CrashPlan backup engine. Running Notepad or any other text-editor as an Admin, edit the CrashPlan engine's CrashPlanService.ini file to allow it to use more java memory:
1- Stop the backup engine: [URL] ..... 2- Locate the Notepad program, right-click and Launch as Administrator 3- Go to File > Open, and navigate to C:Program FilesCrashPlanCrashPlanService.ini (note that you will have to change the option from .txt files to all files in the file selection screen in order to see the CrashPlanService.ini) 4- Find the following line in the file: -Xmx512m 5- Edit to something larger such as 768, 896, or 1024. E.g.: -Xmx1024m
This sets the maximum amount of memory that CrashPlan can use. CrashPlan will not use that much until it needs it. I would recommend starting out setting it to 768, and go higher only if you continue experiencing problems. You can set it as high as 2048 on 32-bit systems, or even higher on 64-bit systems. 6- Start the backup engine.
So I tried it but I couldn't save it, I got an error message that said "Access is Denied".
I have just recently acquired a brand new laptop running Windows 8, and I'm experiencing an issue with editing the details of MP3 files. I can right-click any MP3 to open its properties and access the Details tab, but when I click on the fields for the different tags, nothing happens.
I don't recall ever having this issue on my previous laptop with Windows Vista, so I'm at loss trying to understand what is going on here. I'm not very tech savvy about the subject of permissions and accessibility, but it doesn't really seem to be related to that. The files are listed under my local user directory.
I have followed the instructions from the Windows 7 forum on changing the owner/permissions for a file from Trusted Installer to Administrator but cannot see an EDIT button. I am trying to delete files associated with the Delta Search malware which was detected and deactivated by Malwarebytes.
I haven't found anything about dual booting when Win7 is on a RAID0 volume.
I've already tried a couple of different ways and keep getting the same error message......Win8 can't edit the master boot record, which I believe it can't because it can't find it due to the fact its on a RAID0 volume.
I'm not about to pop the RAID0 volume and have nothing but Win8 when not everything will work with it yet.
First, I tried to edit the 'hosts' file but wasn't let save the change as having no permission. I'm the only user and administrator. I took over ownership and gave full rights to myself, rebooted, still the same.
Second, I tried to run notepad as administrator for the same reason. It wouldn't open. Then, I wanted to start it from an elevated command prompt, but cmd didn't start as admin either. This, like notepad, opened nicely as 'normal', neither as admin.
I'm considering doing a clean install of Windows Pro 8.1 on an ASUS VivoTab ME400C-C2-BK tablet to recapture the space from the restore partition. After doing some research it seems others that have done this run into conflicts if attempting to restore/repair file corruption through Windows down the road because it looks at the BIOS and finds Core version reference.
Is there a way to insert 8.1 Pro key into BIOS to prevent version conflicts?
If not, is there a way to avoid version conflict issues with the BIOS? (simply reinstall?) I did search here but came up empty.
What I am trying to do is sort my favorites for the IE10 app. So far there seems to be no way to manually arrange the favorites so what I tried to do was change the sort in the favorites folder under C/USERS/myname etc. I was going to add a 1 to the detail tab in the file properties but I get an error message reading "You need to provide administrator permission to apply properties to this file." If I select continue the message reads "You need permission to perform this action" "You require permission from MEMe to make changes to this file"
I am the only user and set up as the system administrator. I have tried completely disabling UAC and installed "Take Ownsership" Nothing has allowed me to do this. Now my problem is there is no reason why I can't add a 1 to the detail description to a file for sorting. What harm could possibly come from editing that field. Most importantly, if I am the system administrator why am I fighting for permission from myself?
I am getting error "Save failed - Please check if this file is opened in another program" when trying to edit the hosts file in Notepad++. This has only started happening after a fresh installation of Windows 8 on a new computer. My previous computer with Windows 8.1 was able to do it correctly without any errors. I am using only one account on both computers, but for some reason on the new computer, the UAC keeps getting in the way. I have lowered the UAC warnings all the way down but that hasn't worked. Is there another setting I'm missing?
Note that I don't want to right-click Notepad++ and choose "Run as administrator" every time I want to edit a system file. I see that as a waste of time and an unnecessary step since I am already using an administrator account. I didn't have to do that on the old computer.
I am the only user on my computer and I am registered as a Microsoft user, yet I still have to grant admin access to run certain programs and edit certain files. How can I grant myself access to everything?
I have been using Movie Maker in Windows 8 to edit video (MP4 H.264) files. How to burn movie to disc. I have dvd burner software but can't load movie to it. How I might do this? If not possible any alternative video editor/burner software.
This is when I tried to install a fresh OS (Windows 8 Enterprise N) into an acer laptop with a config, i3, 4gb, 500gb, win7 ult. I can't delete or re-create any of the drive partitions. The options are disabled there.I first thought it might be a problem with the compatibility of the hardware with the Win8 operating system. So I tried to boot with win7 OS installation to delete all the partitions, but no use, got same problem with win7 too.
No partitions are being deleted. So I started the system with the old win7 OS (installed in the system), from the disc management option deleted all the drives except drive C (of course the OS will not let me format or delete drive C ). and then reboot with the Win8 installation, created 2 new partitions, formatted C drive and then installed the OS. I needed to change the C drive partition size but I couldn't.
