    I can't be administrator


    Hello, recently I figured out that I can't edit folders like "System32" or "SysWOW64", I tried to add my user as administrator but it doesn't work, it still saying that I don't have permission, I tried to change the permissions in the folder proprieties but it doesn't work.
    What's it?

    Those are system files protected to keep users and viruses from tampering with them and possibly causing Windows to crash.

    Any system folder is protected if you add anyone else then virus,malware,hackers would have a field day. A lot users have messed and bricked the PC

    Right-click on the Start button & select Windows PowerShell [Admin].
    1 If the dialog that appears allows you to proceed just by clicking on a Yes button then your user account is an Admin user account.
    2 If the dialog that appears demands a password first then your user account is a standard user account.

    By the way, you can post diagrams in your TenForums posts and they generally get a better response than merely posting a link to them elsewhere.

    Thank u
    Apparently my user is an administrator, I figured out how to have full control to the folder files.

    Now I know how to add screenshots to my posts.
