Changing Folder Permissions in Windows 10


Changing the permissions of folders on a Windows computer varies slightly by operating system.

This step is not obvious and, if not taken, the user may think that they cannot change the folder permissions.

Attached are the instructions for how to change a folder’s permissions within Windows 10.
