    I am not sure why you want to do this; however, this tutorial will show you how to take ownership of a system file and also show you how to return the ownership to the trusted installer. Just be careful what you do here:

    Change Owner of File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 10

    Hope this helps.

    Good luck,
