    Yes, but I want to know how to restore full functionality in protected


    This is all well and good, but I want to know how to restore full functionality to protected folders. When I go into "C:\Program Files" I want to be able to right-click and create a new text file. How do I do that?

    Hello pblanton, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    This is done by design for system folders.

    You can create a new .txt file say on your desktop, then move it to "C:\Program Files" as a workaround.
