    Require permission from myself to delete folder

    When I try to delete some folders it asks me to give administrator permission to delete it so I do then it tells me I require permission from MSI/BBass (myself) to make changes to this folder. This has happened for multiple folders in my steam folder. I've tried giving myself permission which did nothing but I have been able to delete the folders by going in and deleting everything inside the folder then deleting the folder itself. But this problem has happened to a lot of my games and each game folder has hundreds and even thousands of folders for some games so it's not possible for me to manually delete everything.

    Windows 10 takes away the ability of the Administrator to make changes to the OS partition without giving yourself further permission. Also, if you are running in administrator mode to avoid this, you can't even open any UWP apps.
