Windows 7: You do not have access to this file

16 Dec 2016   #1

You do not have access to this file

I was so tired of seeing that I don't have access to my own files that I made myself an administrator log-on. It told me to name",it so I called it In Charge (my own little dig at getting to see everything that was mine anyway) So now windows is filing everything I save under In Charge or somewhere else. I don't want stuff there. I thought I had lost a bunch of files and they were stored somewhere else. I save thing and then don't know where to find them without searching. And I see now that I actually have 3 places. Under my computer name, under In Charge and under Administrator. I thought I was the administrator. Can I just give my computer a name and have all of my stuff filed there and have access? No one else has access to my computer.

Others here can tell you much better than I that Windows has rules and regulations. You can create all the admin-level accounts you want, those rules and regulations are not going away. Now, you have stuff scattered amongst three different accounts. Unless you can tell me that you were saving all data folders and files within a separate data partition -- the clean-up road, the getting stuff back into one place road -- will be a bit complex.
