    Administrator Permission?

    I tried the new list of steps you gave me. But they're the same as the first list. And the same thing happened. I did something when I was following your first list, and things seemed like they would work. But I don't remember what I did! You said you knew what I did for things to work...

    Administrator Permission?

    I've checked those out many times. None of them are even close to being adequate for me. If the magnifier doesn't work in Win 10, I don't want to install Win 10 until they fix the it. I'd like to know if I can just download that OS to my thumb drive and wait 'til the magnifier works. Can I...

    Administrator Permission?

    Thanx! :) I'll go through the steps tomorrow I think. But something else has come up. I saw a YouTube video that brought up problems with the Windows magnifier in Win 10! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElhNNnyJgYk If the magnifier doesn't work properly in Win 10, I won't be able to use...

    Administrator Permission?

    OH wait! I'm confused! You may not be the Windows Insider! But I'm hoping you still might be able to help with this! :)

    Administrator Permission?

    OK, but I never got to the end of your step by step process. In step 2, do I go to EDIT or ADVANCED? Remember... EDIT leads me to a window with an ADD button... and ADVANCED leads me to a window with those "principals" but no ADD button. What should I do? I think it would really help if...

    Administrator Permission?

    If I click on EDIT, then the new window has an ADD button. If I click ADVANCED, there's no ADD button but there's a list of "PRINCIPALS."

    The reason why you don't see the "Select a principal" is because you accidentally pressed the Edit button. If you look under the Edit button on the bottom, there's an Advanced button. Press that instead I'm in a window called: Advanced Security Settings for LocalDisk (C:) I'm on step 2. of...

    Administrator Permission?

    I tried to copy some other files, and some copied and some got that same error. Originally I tried to copy everything from the C drive. And immediately I got the error. Then I tried to copy individual files, and got that same error message. I'd like to be able to copy ALL the...

    Administrator Permission?

    OK this time there was a SECURITY tab. And there's even a PERMISSIONS tab! But no ADD button. :( I should mention that I have very poor eyesight, and I'm a "high functioning" autistic, (Asperger's). So I live in a world of Alice in Wonderland a lot of the time. OH, I see... you left out a...

    Administrator Permission?

    OK I see I forgot to tell you I'm on Windows 8.1. I right clicked the file. There's no "security tab."

    Computer restarts after hibernating.

    Computer restarts after "Hibernate." My system will not shut down properly in Win 8.1. It was that way in Win 8 as well. Nothing would fix the problem so I just used "Hibernate" instead of "Shutdown," and things seemed to work find for a couple of years! But now the computer has begun to...
