Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000005) when Eg. trying to change default printer

Occasional Contributor

Problem occurred after updating to 1803. This solves the problem (or actually, did in my case)

 

1. Regedit

2. Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows

3. Backup/Export the Windows reg folder

4. Right click on Windows folder and select Permissions…

5. Here check the Full Control permission for Your user under Allow option. Click Apply > OK to save changes.

6. Delete these following registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows (I only had Legacy+User, not device) 

LegacyDefaultPrinterMode

UserSelectedDefault

Device

7. Reboot

 

Just wanted to let You know. Really annoying problem........
