    I certainly can relocate each user's special folders, ie. Documents, Pictures, etc. I would like to teach, include in my lesson plan, how to deny every user access to a folder that is outside the special folder group. I was hoping it was possible to do this.

    I know my knowledge on the subject is limited but I am trying to acquire the necessary skill. I also don't know if Security has some sort of hierarchy or precedence rules. I do know the Deny is stronger than Allow, but are there any other set rules, i.e. that Everyone is stronger than Users and how do they aggregate. For example, if User is set to Read and Everyone is set to Write, is the effective permission Read/Write. Question, is it possible to remove an individual user from a group. For example, can I remove myself from the Everyone and User groups? What are the side-effects.

    Unfortunately, all these questions are outside of Microsoft support for Window 10 Home and Pro.
