    WindowsApps folder permissions


    Hi,

    I was playing with that folder in order to change the icons, so I changed the permissions so it could let me in... now I want to change it as it was before! How do I do it? I saw my name twice as users with permissions, so I deleted one of them but couldnt delete the other.... I still have access to the folder, please how do I fix it.
