How to Grant Permissions in Windows 7

In response to query asked by SUNNI BALA SANKAM
Windows 7 has implemented addition security mechanism to prevent accidental or intentional modification by not allowing users to access/edit some folders/files.   But if you need to access, modify or delete such files or folder you need to get the permissions on that file/folder. Here in this guide i am going to tell 2 ways of doing so.... 1. Manual, which can allow you give permissions to any user of the system. and  2. Automatic using registry edit file, through which you can give permissions only to the user through which you are login. 

Manually Grant Permissions in Windows 7

1. Right click on file or folder on which you want to take ownership>> Properties.
2. In  Properties windows >> Click on Edit button>> Click ok to confirm UAC elevation request.
3. Now select user account name to which you want to give control, in case you dont find the user then add it first.
4. Now under Permission >> under Allow >>  check the rights which you want to grant/get.
5. Click Ok for changes to take effect and click ok final ok to exit from Properties window.

Automatically Get Permissions in Windows 7

1. First Download
Download from GoogleDocs
Download from zshare
2. In this zip file you will find  two reg (registry) files InstallTakeOwnership.reg and RemoveTakeOwnership.reg.
3. Double Click on InstallTakeOwnership.reg, it will  edit registry and create Take Ownership option in right click context menu. 
4. Now Right click on file or folder on which you want to take ownership>> click Take Ownership.

Now you can access files of folder in windows 7 with full permissions and take full control.
