    How to get access to C:\Windows\Temp\ folder in Windows 8


    Hi Everyone

    I have recently installed Windows 8 Professional 64 bit version on my new PC.

    I don't seem to have access to the C:\Windows\Temp\ folder in Windows 8. Some of the applications that I want o install seem to need write access to this folder. I am running as an Administrator but I still can't change the folder permissions.

    Is there a way to do so - so that I can then install these programs?


    Best regards

    What does yours show.

    Right click on C:\Windows\temp and select Properties. Click on the Security tab.

    Try giving Full Control to Administrators/(DepakPC/Administrators), see if that helps.

    Hi,
    Well i tried that too and i got this:
    Click image for larger version
    I think you should try this:
    Uncheck this, it will allow programs to install files in it:
    Click image for larger version
    Also, try this:
    Click image for larger version
    Then:
    Click image for larger version
    After that:
    Click image for larger version
    And click ok then yes and you and your programs should now have access to Temp folder.
    Hope i helped.
