Thread: Access rights in Windows 7

    Default Access rights in Windows 7

    Installed with success Parallels Desktop 7 with Windows 7 Home & Premium edition.

    I did not have to register with Microsoft nor give my name, just put in the registration key. It seems that I am classified as an administrator only. Do I have to do something about that?

    Many folders in Windows are just locked and there is no way I can modify the access rights of those folders.

    Is there a way to fix that?

    As an administrator you can grant yourself access to all files.
    from the main menu select Computer:
    then right click Local Disk C drive
    select Properties
    a Local Disc(c:) Properties window will pop-up
    select Security-
    under Group or user names: select Administrator
    make sure that in the area below Group or user name
    Allow is checked, this should grand you access to all files on the computer.

    By default your Administrator in windows 7 is disable. You have to enable that like this...

    It seems that there is no way I can access the locked folders.

    This is a characteristic of Windows 7.
