Permission? What the...

I was just trying to move an audio file from my Desktop to my Music folder... I got this window. Why? I am the only person with an account on my computer - other than my guest account...

Nano

was music folder created in a different OS like vista, maybe? the other thing is it may just be UAC. Are you running as a standard user or admin?

You can check by cpanel>users>your user name. does it say admin? See pic

and here is how to change UAC User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

maybe take ownership of the file?
download the first 'download' button from this tutorial, and once downloaded double click.
once it has merged, right click the music file and there should be a 'Take ownership' button. click, then see if it will move.
