How do I allow access to Picture, Document Photos etc after W10 upgrad-users.jpg Its driving me crazy any help appreciated. One suggestion I tried was under properties of each folder ticking the read only box at the bottom and that didnt help. Thanks in advance.

    Is your username Daniel or GDPPA?

    You may just need to transfer ownership of those folders over to your new user account :)

    I personally make my changes using method 4, you can use whatever method you prefer. Seems like 1 may be the simplest and easiest. I still prefer method 4.

    What specific folder did you take ownership of? Did you take over the entire user Daniel?

    Do all windows updates. You can create a new profile to see if you still get the same issues. Once you take ownership of files you need to modify permissions for that folder and give your user permission to edit and modify and all that good stuff.
