    Using Office 2007 with Windows 10


    I installed Win10 when the upgrade became available...all seemed well until recently. I am using Office 2007 and when i try to save documents, ie; excel or word, i am told i am unable to save to the document folders or previous .xls folders that i had created. The system will let me save the file to the desktop...then i have to drag and drop into the designated folders...with a prompt telling me that i need admin privileges. What gives with this? Any ideas out there? Cheers and beers

    I had a similar issue in one of the older versions of Windows 10. But it is not restricted just to MS Office. So I don't know if it is relevant to your issue.
    My problem was that I was unable to save anything to any folder except the desktop.
    Eventually I got it fixed by right click at a Folder such as Pictures folder > Properties > Security > highlight HomeUser or user name> click Edit > give full permissions > OK when done.

    David hk, I attempted making the corrections that you suggested and ran into more problems...although i think i understand the problem. When right clicking a folder>Security -- I am shown the box with Group or User Name. The box is heavily populated with the following:
    1 System
    2 Bill Cloonan(billyC99@hotmail.com)
    3. Home User(Bill-PC\Administrator)
    4. Administrators (Bill-PC\Administrator)

    Confused about this...seems like i should only have at the most 2 entries. I am the only user of the PC. I tried doing a screen shot to show you the errors that i am receiving...Thoroughly confused

    In Post #4, I mentioned HomeUser. Yes?

    I would click Home User(Bill-PC\Administrator).
    Then look at the Permission box.
    Does it have all the permissions checked ?
    If not, click the Edit button and check all the boxes under Permissions.
    OK when done.

    It would look something like this when done............................

    David...I clicked on the User you recommended (Home Users(Bill-PC\Administrator) and ensured that all of the boxes are checked. This seems to have solved my problem. Thank you for your assistance...I am wondering why the "Group or User" box has so many entries. I can understand having a "System" Entry and "Home User(Bill-PC\Administrator" Don't understand why there are two additional entries. They are: 1. Bill Cloonan(billyC99@hotmail.com), this is the hotmail address that i created several years ago. 2. Administrators(Bill-PC\Administrator). Trying to get clear in my mind why there are so many entries and are all of the entries required?Prnt Scr showing Users.docx

    I may not of done the attachment properly

    I don't know why you have more entries under Group or user names.
    I am sure some one else will be able to answer that question.

    At least now you have no problem saving docs.
    If you don't mind, please mark this thread as Solved.
    Thank you.
