    Hm weird, I took the WindowsApps folder over and tried dropping some .dlls in there because something was broken and it did not allow me so.

    Hello Oli, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    The "WindowsApps" folder is a protected system folder.

    Since you have taken ownership of the "WindowsApps" folder, you should be able to now open it and allow access when prompted.

    Afterwards, you should be able to drop the .dll files in the folder.

    I know I should, but the problem is I am not able, also I am trying to drag files in a subfolder of the WindowsApps, maybe thats the problem. If that should not be the problem I would like to contact you somehow :)

    So I Just checked and it seems fine, I boxed my User in red. Sorry for the language it says
    I got full permissions and when I checked them specifically only the special permissions arent checked Click image for larger version.

    Can you copy the files from your desktop to this folder?

    Windows will not allow to directly copy into a system folder from an external or unknown source.

    No It wont let me, it always says that I need permissions, then I press continue and then it just asks me to repeat and repeat and repeat...

    I just tested on my system for that same folder, and it will not let me copy a file in it as well, even with my account as owner with full permissions set.

    It appears that is is a protected OS folder that Windows will not allow to be modified no matter what.
