    Give me rights on context menu


    Hello!

    I'm using this tweak for context menu: Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    How I can make it work to give me full rights aswell?

    Thank you!

    That is a bit more complicated, you would have to use icalcs or powershell to disable inheritance and take permissions.

    Windows command line icacls command help

    PowerShell - Grant-Permission - Carbon

    You could really do your Windows some serious damage if you take over Full Rights to the Windows System files. Just a word to WARN you!!!

    Yep! Better to change permissions manually on individual objects.

    This isn't as simple as it sounds.

    Taking ownership is a relatively simple operation, with a few complicating factors. But owning a file or folder doesn't necessarily grant you any permissions to it. Most files and folders do not have explicitly assigned permissions but inherit them from a higher level folder. To assign explicit permissions you first have to break inheritance. When you do that you have to decide whether to explicitly assign the previously inherited permissions or remove them. Which you would choose depends on the purpose, which no context menu could know. And who do you assign permissions to? Your own account or the primary group you belong to, such as the administrators group?

    Windows does not have a built in capability to do what you want. I think this was a wise decision. It doesn't give you the control necessary to do it right and makes it too easy to do dangerous things.

    Windows was designed to grant you only the permissions you need. From a security standpoint, which has become increasingly important in recent years, this is a good thing. An admin level account can take ownership and grant whatever permissions are needed, but you had better understand what you are doing or security or functionality may be compromised. Windows security is complex and takes some real work to understand.
