    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.
