    windows 10 pro x64 fall creators update

    scanning permissions


    the windows fax and scan utility can't start up because it can't access the documents folder, where it saves the scans.

    then I tried the windows 10 scan app. It saves by default to the pictures folder. It, too, could not save to the default location. but I discovered that I can set it to save to desktop, and that works. But it forgets my choice as soon as I close the app.
    I am the owner of these folders. Why can't my apps access them? I checked documents properties, and I have full permissions.

    the windows fax and scan utility wants to save files in the Scanned Documents folder inside Documents.
    I shared Scanned Documents with homegroup, and now the windows fax and scan utility starts up again.
