    Can't access My Pictures, Videos, Music


    Hi,

    I have been unable to access my pictures since I moved my files to a my new computer.
    Can't access My Pictures, Videos, Music-013.jpg
    Can't access My Pictures, Videos, Music-capture-011.jpg

    Same result trying from C:\Users\Me
    Can't access My Pictures, Videos, Music-capture012.jpg

    I don't see any other way to access those folders. There are new Picture, Video and Music folders but they only show up in 'This PC' and not in my documents. All my other files showed up so I'm assuming that they are here too.
    Thanks,
    Marc

    You wont be able to access the files as they will be owned by the SID of the user on the other pc you will need to otake ownership of all the folders we have a tool for that Add Take Ownership to Context Menu in Windows 10

    Okay, I get the following errorCan't access My Pictures, Videos, Music-capture014.jpg
    I have a separate Admin account. Should I be in that account to add the context menu?

    You must be an administrator to be able to add, remove, and use the "Take Ownership" context menu.
    Did you try to add the reg as administrator?

    I work in a standard user account. I have an admin account so usually when I try to make changes to my computer I'm prompted to enter the Admin PW. That does not happen with this file.
    When I right click on Add_Shift+Right-Click_Take_Ownership_to_context_menu, I don't get the option to run as administrator.

    - open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts\Change Your Account Type
    - Change your account type to Administrator
    - "Take Ownership" of all files under your user name.
    - open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts\Change Your Account Type
    - Change your account type to Standard

    Is it a company computer?
    Is Win 10 a Home or Pro version?
