Windows 7: TrustedInstaller - Restore as Owner Context Menu Shortcut

29 Oct 2011   #1

TrustedInstaller - Restore as Owner Context Menu Shortcut

Hello 7,

I have been using the "Take Ownership" context menu shortcut for quite a while now and I absolutely love it. It saves immense amounts of time when editing system files. My question is:

Would it be possible to create a context menu item that does the following:

- Set file permissions to:
TrustedInstaller - Restore as Owner Context Menu Shortcut-untitled.png

- Sets ownership to TrustedInstaller

Any help would be very appreciated!


A batch file that does the same thing would be perfect also. I have successfully created my own context menu items that point to batch files saved elsewhere on my system. THANKS!
