You don’t have permission to access this folder

I’m the admin. I’m logged in as the owner.

Why the fuck don’t I have access to all folders?

    Because Administrator doesn't mean what it used to mean in Windows.


    You need to use the following.


    takeown /F C:\X\Y\Z /A /R

    icacls C:\X\Y\Z /grant Administrators:F /T


    Yes, it's a PITA. [Bonus points adding this as a right-click action for directories in File Explorer.]
