    Hello Jstar, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    While the context menu should do this for you, you could use the commands from the tutorials below to create a .bat file to take ownership and set permissions of those items.

    safe to assume this doesnt work on drives? or entire c folders aka program files?

    I know better to take ownership of anything like that, just trying to figure if its missing from my context menu in those "contexts" due to my recent upgrade to insider build (always breaks a few things) or if it was never there to begin with (coulda swore it was but hey).

    Hello klepp,

    Correct. The Take Ownership context menu will not be available when you right click or press and hold on any drive, the C:\Program Files folder, the C:\Program Files (x86) folder, the C:\ProgramData folder, the C:\Users folder, and the C:\Windows folder.
