Windows 7: Is there anyway to change user permissions via .reg file?

09 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home 64b
Is there anyway to change user permissions via .reg file?

I'm trying to create a .reg file that I can distribute to automatically remove Homegroup from the Windows 7 Windows Explorer Navigation Pane.. (and several other folders actually)

So like in that case it would be -

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


...But you need to give administrator permissions via Rclick > Permissions > Administrators > Allow Full Control

in order to use that .reg file.

I'm super new to making .reg files, Is there any way that you can incorporate the permissions into a .reg file?

If not, is there a way I can give the key admin permissions via a newbie-computer-user-friendly way?

Thank you!
