    As I said, you do but not explicitly by name.
    If you run this command in a cmd prompt window
    Code:
    net user %UserName%
    or, in a PS window,
    Code:
    net user $env:UserName
    you will see that your account is a member of the Administrators group which is listed in the Permissions for those folders.
    Whenever you refer to that group, do be careful to include the s at the end to avoid confusion with the Built-in Admin account [which has the UserName Administrator,singular].


    And please stop making me guess what you mean:-

    When I open C: Drive, right click on any of the three folder/files
    I believe you meant that you right-clicked on, for example, C:\Program files selected Properties, selected the Security tab and I also guess that you might have even meant that you then clicked on the Advanced button.
    Guessing leads to misunderstandings & errors.

    Trevor,

    I've just added to my post #11

    I hope the checks I've suggested help you understand how Permissions are listed in folders.

    But you will never see all the effective Permissions for the root folder of the OS drive because some are implemented by a different, undocumented method.
    These root folder limitations have changed over time but the changes seem to be mistakes in Windows updates rather than deliberate changes in policy.
    It's been like this since Windows 7 days, sometimes you can create a file in the root folder & sometimes you can't. I suspect that such a change happened around the time you did your Pro upgrade because there is no difference in the way the two Editions treat that root folder.

    Just a quick update, I tried again this morning after a new Windows update and I now have full permissions? Not sure what where or how, but all seems to be working okay.

    Thanks again to the three members (Try3, Samuria, Zebal) who took time out to try and help me, very much appreciated.

    Trevor,

    I'm glad the problem has gone away.

    Oh, and a [belated] welcome to TenForums.

    It's really worth making time to browse through the Tutorial index - there's a shortcut to it at the top of every page.
    - At the foot of the Tutorial index is a shortcut to download it as a spreadsheet.
    - I download a new copy each month.
    - By downloading it as a spreadsheet I can benefit from Excel's excellent filtering capabilities when I search for topics of interest.
    - Tutorials are also listed by category at Tutorials - there's also a shortcut to that at the top of every page.
    - Both tutorial lists are searchable.
    - You can also search for TenForumsTutorials in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com/tutorials after your search term. For example,
    taskbar toolbars site:tenforums.com/tutorials

    You can search TenForums using the search box in the top-right corner of all TenForums webpages or using Advanced Search - TenForums
    - You can also search TenForums threads in many general search engines, such as Google, by adding site:tenforums.com after your search term. For example,
    Search for drivers by HardwareID site:tenforums.com
    - [This is what the search box in the top-right corner of TenForums webpages does automatically]


    Thanks for the rep,
    Denis
