    The "y" parameter bolded in red in the "Directory" registry entry below is used to say yes to automatically confirm changing the owner. Unfortunately, this needs to be translated for a different language to use the first letter of "Yes" for that language instead.

    In your case, change "y" for yes (English) to "t" for taip (Lithuanian).

    Code:
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\runas\command]
    @="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant *S-1-3-4:F /t /c /l /q & pause"
    "IsolatedCommand"="cmd.exe /c takeown /f \"%1\" /r /d y && icacls \"%1\" /grant *S-1-3-4:F /t /c /l /q & pause"

    I am running the 64bit version of win 10 pro version 1607 build 14393.693 - English language
    I have a file that won't let me delete it.
    I downloaded the take ownership with pause. It installed properly, and executes, but I get...
    ERROR: Access is denied.
    Press any key to continue . . .

    Hello dogsled,

    The location of the file may be locked. You might see if you may be able to manually take ownership of the file instead.

    Tried all of that. I downloaded the reg file because nothing else worked. takeown gives ERROR: Access is denied. Thinking about taking a chisel to the hard drive.

    In that case, see if you may be able to sign in and use the built-in "Administrator" account to take ownership of the file.

    Thanks for your prompt responses. I enabled the administrator account but, alas, it got the same "access denied" error that I got under my profile. Windows is really being ugly about this.

    I don't know what it is or where it came from. I just happened to notice it today.

    You might see if the free program Unlocker may be able to delete it for you.

    @Brink
    Does your method in the link from Post #282 involve adding yourself as a Principle then check marking Full Control?
    Works for me every time.
    Gotta be darn sure of the object you're messing with though!
