    cannot open a system's folder

    Why can't I open in windows the folder "windowsapps", it says I have no permission to open it, I am the only owner / user of my pc, and when system was installed, defined as admin.
    Note; In this folder was installed some "candy crush..." .
    Thanks for answers

    It is a protected folder - you need to change permissions should you wish to access it, or do so from a boot disk e.g.

    A quick search will tell you more - many topics on this on the net.

    You can uninstall Candy crush- accessing the folder is not the correct way to do this.

    To add to Dalchina's excellent advice, let me observe that there's a tutorial that explains exactly how to uninstall apps like Candy Crush in Windows 10: Apps - Uninstall in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums. That should show and tell you exactly what to do to make it "go away."
