Windows 7: Error assigning ownership "Unable to set new owner on.. Access denied"

Error assigning ownership "Unable to set new owner on.. Access denied"

Hi,

I've a question about assigning ownership.
I'm logged in as user "Steph".
As Steph, I made a new folder "Documents_Steph".
Because she made the folder, she's owner of this folder.

Then I tried as Steph to assign ownership to a different user "User01".
But then I got the message "Unable to set new owner on.. Access denied"?
Though I thought that when you're owner of a file or folder, you can assign ownership to everyone?
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!!

Kind regards,

Kind regards,
Taking ownership of a file is a multi step process unless you use the "take ownership" shortcut which does all the work for you.
