Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit


I downloaded & ran the updated version. Folders all showing the ownership option.

As such, I propose the following AppliesTo string.
"AppliesTo"="NOT (System.ItemPathDisplay:=\"C:\\Users\" OR System.ItemPathDisplay:=\"C:\\ProgramData\" OR System.ItemPathDisplay:=\"C:\\Windows\" OR System.ItemPathDisplay:=\"C:\\Windows\\System32\" OR System.ItemPathDisplay:=\"C:\\Program Files\" OR System.ItemPathDisplay:=\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\")"
Itís similar to the one now except it applies strictly exclusively to those folders and not any of their child items.
Thank you. Updated.

can two additions to context menue be done?

Nice one Brink! I am new here. It seems to me that "take ownership" "and restore to system", or other previous owner, would be very convenient if installed together. The problem as I see it is that the directory in the registry is always given as "runas/command" so the first installed is overwritten by the second. Is this a hard restriction or is there a way round it? I have tried a number of fudges but no luck.

Hello Rob, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yeah, that's the main issue I ran across as well with it under "runas". I haven't found a viable alternative yet either.

Thanks for the prompt reply Brink. I don't have the system knowledge to research this possibility so I think it stays at that.
Thanks again
