How to provide permission to copy a folder.

  rayhalvey 09:46 22 Jun 2014

Whenever i try to copy a folder into my platform it comes up with "You will need to provide administrator permission to copy this folder". I am the only user of this PC and the owner. My operating system is Windows 7 and I would very much appreciate any help as it is driving me daft.

Isn't there a tick box to say you are the administrator?.

If that isn't the case, then perhaps some other forum member might have the answer?.

Or search Google for a program called "Take Ownership" which will do it for you. It adds a right click menu item to Windows Explorer.

I seem to remember having to Right click on the folder/file icon in order to claim Administrator rights before I could proceed. I can't remember what it was I was trying to do but I did manage it after Right clicking and clicking on Admin rights or something.

So, maybe give that a try? Nothing to loose ;)
