To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions
Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the file or folder for which you want to set permissions Right-click the file or folder, click Properties, and then click the Security tab. Do one of the following: To set up permissions for a new group or user, click Add. Type the name of the group or user you want to set permissions for using the format domainname\name, and then click OK to close the dialog box. To change or remove permissions from an existing group or user, click the name of the group or user. In Permissions, click Allow or Deny for each permission you want to allow or deny, if necessary. Or, to remove the group or user from the permissions list, click Remove. Note
To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. You can set file and folder permissions only on drives formatted to use NTFS To change permissions, you must be the owner or have been granted permission to do so by the owner. Groups or users granted Full Control for a folder can delete files and subfolders within that folder regardless of the permissions protecting the files and subfolders. If the check boxes under Permissions are shaded, or if the Remove button is unavailable, then the file or folder has inherited permissions from the parent folder. For more information on how inheritance affects files and folders, see Related Topics.
