    unable to save to folder on my laptop as no longer ''Ádministrator'

    Went to print doc last night and discovered that I could not do so. Was asked to save the doc to 'Documents' but couldn't print. How can I take back control of my folders and docs so that I can print?

    Hi, how were you printing the document?
    Did you
    - print it from within a program such as MS Word?
    - rt click it in file explorer and click Print?

    Do you have a printer set as default if you did the second of those?
