Permissions and Ownership in Windows 10
Hi guys, this tutorial is based on permissions and ownership of windows 10. In previous tutorial we have covered the installation. If you are working in official environment then you will not permit the administrator rights to users.
Owner of a file or folder always has the ability to assign permissions to that file or folder.
NTFS permissions are assigned using two formats.
- Standard NTFS Permissions
- Individual NTFS Permissions
Standard NTFS Permissions
Used for folders, allows new files and folders to be created in the folder.
Used for files, allows the files to be rewrite.
Allows files and folders data, attributes, ownership and security to be viewed.
List Folder Contents
Only applies to the folders. Allows files and folder contained in a folder to be listed.
Read & Execute
Used for folders, allows read access to files and folders.
Used for files, allows read access to the file’s information. If it is an executable file, user is allowed to run.
