    I'm sure on windows 7 you didn't have to use the built-in admin account to avoid having these kind of prompts.
    You could try this below to elevate administrators.

    Hello Brink, great work you do!

    For me "Take Ownership" is not working correctly. When I want to delete a folder I get the first message, see Screenshot 1. That's normal because I don't own the folder yet.

    Then I select "Take Ownership" from the context menu and then I try to delete the folder again I get another message, see Screenshot 2.

    The owner changed, but I'm still not the owner of the folder.

    Hello Ubimo,

    Since you do not have an English Windows installed, that would be the problem. You will need to change the y (yes) commands in bold red below from the .reg file with your language version of them. Afterwards, save and merge the .reg again.

    I did as you said, copied your code to a .reg file, replaced the three bold, red "y" to my language ("j").
    I think you missed one "y" in the 8th line from the bottom up. I tried everything. Nothing is working.

    Then I tried to run this and other commands from the .reg in console: cmd.exe /c takeown /f "%1" && icacls "%1" /grant administrators:F /c /l
    The answer was: File or folder not found
    I think there is somewhere the problem?

    Edit:
    I did some research on the takeown command and found out that the "y" after the /d option is valid, even in my language.

    Edit2:
    It seems the take ownership command changes the ownership to another account which is my account but I do not have the permission to delete the folder. Weird...

    Edit3:
    Just for your info, I disabled UAC via Windows 10 Manager, I hope this is no problem.

    In that case, see if you may be able to successfully take ownership and set permissions using OPTION FOUR below.

    Dear Brink, thank you for the fast responses.
    As you can see the "take ownership" command already added me as owner, but I only have the permission to read or run. I can set it manually to full access but it would be more comfortable to do this with one click from the context menu. I think I have to flip some switches in the .reg file...

    I see the problem. This is a protected OS file/folder. Those you need to do manually.

    Re Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 10


    Take Ownership in the Context Menu worked great for me. My only problem seems to be with persistence. When I reboot the computer I'm back to square one and I have to take ownership and/or change the Permissions for HomeUsers all over again. Is there anything I can do to maintain persistence? Thanks much. Stan
