    1. Right click an affected folder.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the Security tab
    4. Click the "Advanced" button.
    5. Click "Change" next to Owner.
    6. Type your username, click the "Check Names" button, then click OK.
    7. Check "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" under the owner's name.
    8. Click OK again. If you get a message saying "Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you full control?", click "Yes" and you're done.
    9. Click the "Edit" button.
    10. Click on your username from the list.
    11. Check "Full control" underneath it.
    12. Click OK.
    13. Click OK again.

    Repeat with all of the problematic folders.

    Win 10 Permissions Fix

    I encountered the same problem when I upgraded from 8.1 to 10. The fix you received will work - one folder at a time; but if you have thousands of folders across 6 hard drives then that fix becomes a bit unusable.

    Here's what I found that worked for me, it may or may not for you:
    [THEORY] It seems that the security algorithms Microsoft and others use search for the lowest security access listed on your profile and that's the one they use to determine what your security access {permissions] is. If this theory is correct, then if you follow this procedure it will fix all your permission problems, at least for now:
    Procedure:
    Right click on the menu window, bottom left hand corner of the screen
    Left click on 'Computer Management'
    Left click on 'Local Users & Groups'
    Double Left click on 'Users'
    Scroll down the list to your 'username' and then right click
    Left click on 'Properties'
    Left click on 'Member of'
    Scroll down to 'Guests' and highlight it; then click on 'Remove' at the bottom of the window.
    Continue to scroll down to 'Users' (probably the last entry); Highlight it and click 'Remove'
    Click 'Apply'; close all your screens and applications, and
    Then restart your computer.

    This worked for me, and solved my problem with thousands of folders and files, hope it works for you.

    I can't find: 'Local Users & Groups' under Computer Management.
