    How to Add Advanced security to context menu in Windows 8 and Windows 10


    You can use Advanced Security Settings to manually change the owner, change permissions, and set up advanced sharing settings for a selected item.

    This tutorial will show you how to add or remove Advanced security from the context menu of files, folders, and drives for all users in Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10.

    While you must be signed in as an administrator to be able to add or remove the Advanced security context menu, all users with access rights for the item will be able to use the context menu.

    This works in Winbuilder , Windows PreBoot Environment for Win10x64, also.

    I changed "Position" from "Bottom" to (wild guess on my part) "Top" to put it at the top of the rightclick context menu for higher visibility. I searched and have not found any other possible positions.

    Glad to hear it Tony. Yeah, it's pretty much "Top" or "Bottom", or delete the "Position" value for default. :)
