Folder Auditing/Effective Access

Occasional Visitor

In Windows 10 under properties -> security -> Advanced, can you audit or give effective access that is owned by TrustedInstaller or would you have to take ownership of that folder first before you can audit or give effective access to that folder?

 

Please Note: I am not trying nor attempting to destroy my computer in any way shape or form, I am only asking this question for informational purposes only

 

Your help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hi Padlock,

You would need to take ownership of the folder. You can always transfer ownership back to TrustedInstaller once you have made the modifications you need.

Here are some articles to help
