Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Hello I am trying to access certain files such as notepad, music,pictures and certain folders on my desktop but my computer tells me my access is denied and or that it is write protected. I have taken ownership of these files again and again with the same result. I am the administrator and the only user of my computer. It may be something that can be done via pushing a couple of keyboard shortcut keys as my 1 year old sometimes gets her little hand up here and pulls up menus I have never seen.
Please help some of these files are very important.
I have not reinstalled xp or modified it. Also I have tried system restore with no result.
Thanks For Your Help In Advance
If you've taken ownership of the folders, you should be able to access the Security tab and assign yourself full permissions to the folder.
If you don't see the Security tab, go to Folder Options in Control Panel, select the View tab, then in the list box scroll to the bottom and de-select Simple File Sharing.
Hope this helps!
