    Hello Lily,

    Those steps are for if you wanted to add a user or group to be able to change the permissions of.

    If you were able to change the permissions for the user or group that you wanted to, then you are fine.

    windows 8.1 (I think)


    Ok, well I was able to change the file name so I think all is well. Is it advisable to change the permissions back, or is it fine to just leave it like that?

    I think the TipBand.dll.mui file I changed it to the group permissions for administrators, but the TabTap file I changed to both Administrators and myself (Lily) because I was confused.

    Then I found the real files I was supposed to be changing and did the Administrators. Is one better than the other?

    It's fine to leave the permissions set as is unless you just wanted to change them back.

    In that tutorial, you would need to change the correct files for it work. Since you did. you're fine.
