    If your permissions are broken, then the easiest thing to do would be to create an entirely new user account and just copy over your files, browser settings, etc. First, create a new user account and make sure that it doesn't have the permissions issues. Then, transfer your stuff over to it, and delete the faulty account (or leave it just in case you've forgotten something).

    A better way would be to replace ownership as instructed here:

    This worked for me, eventually. The first run kinda destabilized my laptop, but fixed the issue of no Start menu. Actually the, whole left side of the screen, including all the pinned programs, had become unresponsive, where even hovering over the items didn't do anything. For the moment, though, all is well. A second run seems to have resolved most instability issues, knock on wood.

    I am underwhelmed by how Windows 10 worked fine until I tried to use a new user. The transfer from 7 to 10 went fine, even if the owner of my C: drive was TrustedInstaller. There's just no reason a member of Administrators should have issues administrating, since Full Access had been granted. I think Microsoft has to bite the bullet and let Home versions of Windows deal with user groups other than Administrator(s) because it's obvious that some permission things are broken. "DIR >fred.txt" only worked from a Command Prompt running as Administrator, even if the user was an Administrator. Just lame...

    BACK UP FIRST! Image your hard drive with Macrium Reflect Free Macrium Reflect Free

    What you might try next is Reset the PC Reset Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    • All your personal files and apps will be removed.
    • All user accounts will be removed.
    • Your PC settings will be changed back to their defaults.

    Check Windows updates for any updates. Check Microsoft store for any updates.

    Now double click on the image file select all check boxes. Click OK.

    Now you can copy all your data back. And reinstall all your apps.
    I had to do this on one of my laptops because two accounts were cross linked. Resetting the PC fixed it.

    Solved - Just follow the instructions

    Just follow the instruction in this website.
    I was trying to edit the host file inside Windows/System 32/Drivers/etc but Windows 10 always refused to save the file. After doing the instructions, bingo.

    I can assure you that the answer you are looking for is in the link I posted. The term 'OWNER' and 'ADMINISTRATOR' are used differently in Windows when it comes to file permissions. Direct your attention to Option 4. It can be tricky at first but once you understand how it works, you can set files/folders to your whim (and, hopefully, make your PC more secure).

    First of all, I would like to thank you for any help you may be able to provide. I have seen many of your comments and am hopeful you can solve my problem.

    I have a dell pc which was upgraded from win7 to 10. After the upgrade, all sorts of wierd permission problems seem to exist. I have tried multiple changes but none have corrected the problem completely. I saw your posts refereincing the Take ownership of files and get full access in Windows 10 post.

    Trying to follow the directions I have noticed that i can access the information for my c drive and it shows the owner as s-1-5-21-...

    I think changing to administrators would help solve my issues, is this correct?

    While trying to change the owner I click on change but it does not seem to do anything after that. the only change is that the change button becomes greyed out after clicking on it.

    Any suggestions (and confirmation that changing the owner to administrators is a good idea) would be appreciated.
