Solved: Permission to Save? Change Defaults?

Question: Solved: Permission to Save? Change Defaults?

Hello my friends:

I don't know if this is a Vista issue or a MS Word issue:

I tried to "save as" a document specifically to my personally named user folder and got an error message that said:

// "C:\Users\Paul\Documents\Forex\Forex newsletter.docx
// You don't have permission to save in this location.
// Contact the administrator to obtain permission.
//
// Would you like to save in the Documents folder instead?"

I am the administrator and I don't know what's going on with this! I'd give the permission if I knew how!

Is this related?
I've noticed that I have inadvertently been using the "user/documents" path for some saves and I've wanted (still do) to STOP using that and make my own, named folder the default.

How do I stop getting these messages and how to I change the default save to the folder I really want to be using?

Sometimes I feel that Vista is an example of over-improvement and is less easy to use...like now. I *hate* having to waste precious time with little, diddly-squat issues like this one!

Soapbox:
It seems to me that good software ought to seem "invisible" to the user and the tasks for which it is used (like a good sound system should be invisible to the music it conveys). I don't think Vista is really terrible, but I just wish programmers would know when to stop being overly helpful.

I have a fairly old system (Athlon 64 3300+ 2.4GHz). I had two hard drives one consisting of my c: drive that was 160GB. The second is 320GB partitioned into a D: and E: drive. Running Windows 7 Ultimate (on C: drive)

My C: drive recently failed and I had to replace it. I decided to try an SSD drive ( Kingston V-Series 64GB) installed new drive with Windows 7 without any problems (very nice improvement in performance BTW). By Bios recognizes the now c: drive as the primary boot disk, as well as the d:/e: drives. I am able to access the d: and e: drive without any issues.

The problem I am having is when I try and save a file to these drives (d or e) I receive a message saying I do not have permission to save to this drive (neither d: or e) . I am able to save the file to my C: drive and then copy it over to d: or e:, but this is a pain.

Any suggestions on what I can do to give myself permission to save to this drive. I did not format this drive when I re-installed windows on the new SSD drive as I have a lot of files on it that I did not want to lose. Could this be the reason?

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: No permission to save to second drive

Right click on both drives and go to security. Give yourself permission. Remember you installed the new C drive hence you have new credentials or user name. Give that username/account permission to access the d and e drives.

When I backed up all of my pictures and then restored them all on a new computer the permissions set got messed up. The user account name was the same but the name in the permission list is "unknown user".

I can right click on an individual picture, go to properties, then security and add "Everyone" as a user and give it full permission. But that takes time and I have thousands of pictures.

Is there a way to change the permission on groups of them, rather than just one at a time?

i even installed photo gallery as it has the same functionality as PV
it now asks what software do i want to use to open every time i click to open a image.
i contacted ms as a last resort to be told they could fix it in the registry at a cost, i refused on principal, i dont feel i should have to pay for what is an update issue, it worked fine since june.

Question: permission to save

I have Windows 7, and it tells me I don't have permission to save documents in the "My Documents" folder.

So I created a "new my docs" folder instead (in the Documents library on the hard drive), which worked fine for many months, but it now tells me I don't have permission to save in that either.

In addition, some of my files have somehow become "read only" and I can't add to them / edit them.

I frequently get "Word has encountered a problem" messages.

I can now only save Word docs onto a memory stick, not the hard drive.

Can anyone explain this, or help?

Thanks,

My default font has somehow changed to a SUPER small Bernhard Modern font within AOL. For example: the "File-Edit-View-Favorites-Tools-Settings-Help" toolbar, search results, address bar, incoming emails, little grey buttons that say "apply" "cancel" etc.

I have upgraded twice to AOL Desktop 10 but have not succeeded in solving my problem. I have everything set in Windows - Control Panel - Windows Color and Appearance - Advanced Settings.

Once upon a previous version of aol, I found a place to "restore defaults" for fonts and that put my outgoing mail (and other options that I did get changed) back to the same SUPER small Bernhard font.

Any idea how to change the "factory settings" for AOL?

The super small font does show up in IE , Chrome, and in some Windows features sometimes too. It is always present in Norton Anti-virus and in some games. I have gone so far as to delete all the Bernhards from my Windows Fonts folder. That didnt work either.
 

Answer:How do I change the original defaults on AOL?

Never mind -- I figured it out. I opened an old spreadsheet today and there was all this tiny bernhard font, but the font box said it was Arial. I look in my font folder and Arial is gone...poof...disappeared!!

I dont know why it chose bernhard. Do you think Microsoft made money off that somehow??

Check the CD that came with the printer for an owners manual, it should tell you in there.

I think what you want to use is the HP ToolboxFX software if it was installed.

I used the "Drive Icon Changer" and now I'm unable to restore the HDD icon to the default. Can someone please help?

Answer:Can't Change Icon to Defaults

Hello William,

You might see if you can manually change the icon back using the tutorial below. Be sure to also check the yell TIP box as well. The default C: icon path is: C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-36


Drive Icon - Change


If not, then you can do a system restore using a restore point dated before you used "Drive Icon Changer" to undo it.

9. Click the "Edit" button.
10. Click on your username from the list.
11. Check "Full control" underneath it.

I've been trying to download iTunes, and this is what I get:

http://i44.tinypic.com/moroz.jpg

I press "Yes" and it directs me to my "Alice" folder. I, then, press "Save" once more and the same message pops up as if I'm not already in the Alice folder. I cannot even save the program set-up file in any other location as it just brings me back to the Alice folder. Not in the Public folder either. I am the Administrator, no other accounts, not even the guest account. I've tried downloading the newer version of CCleaner and the same thing happens.

I'm a Windows Vista user, I use Firefox as my browser, I use Download Accelerator, I use Comodo, and it's a Toshiba laptop.

Before coming to this site, I searched through other sites and some people do have the same permission problem but I haven't seen one for downloading a program.

I heard about UAC (User Account Control) and used this site to help:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709691(WS.10).aspx

^I follow the instructions but the UAC just won't turn off. I uncheck the box, press "OK", restart, and check to see if it worked, but the box still seems to be checked and is working.

I think it's only program downloads that are having trouble, I can download pictures and save other things correctly.

I hope that I will find help on this site, and it will not result in me restoring my whole computer.
 

Answer:You do not have permission to save in this location...

My top suspect would be Comodo, second Download Accelerator,and third that the two combine to give you headaches.

You hinted that you may have used a registry "cleaner," so that would be another possibility.

I recently installed an SSD and cloned my previous C drive to it. Everything works fine. Except that I cannot save files in Program Files or Program Files x86 on the drive.
I get this message: https://i.gyazo.com/ea5465173975313eeee794c1015ed4e6.png

I haven't changed anything since moving Windows to my new SSD so I don't know how to fix this.

Answer:Don't have permission to save files

You have to save the file in a location where you do have permission, such as Documents. Then you can cut and paste or copy and paste it from that folder to Program Files or Programs Files X86.

or, "Run as Administrator" whatever program it is that is creating the file that you need to save in Program Files

I just tried saving a simple text file created in Wordpad and got the same results you did and both the solutions above worked.

Hi,

I'm not sure if this is a problem relating to my cd rw drive or with the programme I'm attempting to back up from. I have an hp pavillion pc, I never have issues burning cds, however, I am running MYOB accounting pluc V16, when I go to backup and I select my cd rw drive, irrespective of whether its a brand new or previously used rewritable disk, I get a message saying 'you do not have permission to save in this directory. See the administrator to obtain permission.'

This is weird, to me anyway!! I am the administrator of both this pc, and also the MYOB programme. I can save the back up to a my docs file, and then burn to the cd without problem, I have also, previously been able to backup straight to my CD RW drive from this programme, now however, I can't. Its frustrating and time consuming having to save to a file, then open my burning software, and resave to CD.

Do you have any idea how I can fix this. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

I'm running 64 bit Windows 7.

A little while ago, I decided I did not want things to show up in my recent items list. This was when I was still using Vista.

I found a small registry change online, applied it, and poof, no more items showed up in the "Recent Items" list. Worked like a charm.

This morning I decided, on second thought, it would be useful to be able to reference a list of recent documents.

I have three registry back-ups saved, for October and November 2009. This is the timeframe I think I made this change in. But when I click on the back up registry file, it tries to open the file with notepad.exe and says "The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect."

Should I use regedit.exe to open these files instead? Or does anyone know the specific registry change I can make to get my "Recent Items" to start listing files again?

Third, is there a change I can make so that only certain file types show up in the Recent Items list? I only want Word and Excel file associations to appear, but not any videos. That was the original issue.

Thanks,
Chris
 

Answer:Solved: How to change registry to save documents in Recent Items List (Windows 7)

Figured it out!

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Start_TrackDocs and set this REG_DWORD value to 1

This value was initially set to zero (0).

Made that change and poof!

Im in the process of converting my 1600 DVDs to digital and I have found Handbrake to be the best, fastest, and easiest to use out of everything Ive tried.. Im using it on both a PC and a MAC..

When the program is first opened on PC, any settings that you change will remain changed until the program is closed, and when reopened, you have to put the settings back.. However on the Apple, all the settings default after each new DVD is inserted, so im constantly redoing the settings..

Its getting irritating since every now and then I forget to go back an change the settings again and end up having to redo a few movies..

Does anyone know a way to reset the defaults to how I want all my movies ripped? I went thru the normal settings/preferences and there is not really a whole lot you can change.. Im not a stranger to .ini editing on PC, but I could not find a similar file for PC, and have no idea what to look for on the Mac since I am so new to the file system.. I am aware that I can make a custom preset, but it still does not default to it.

Can anyone tell me if this is possible to do an how?
 

Answer:Handbrake - Change Setting Defaults?

You have to make a new preset and then set that new preset as the default.

I need to change the default where my WORD docs get saved.

They go to "My Documents" now.

I want them to go to "My documents shortcut"

NOTE: "My documents" says "empty folder"

"My documents shortcut" contains all my files, so I want my WORD docs to default there.

Don't ask me how this happened, I don't know, and my previous thread to fix this seemed to confuse everyone.

thanks,

Dennis

Answer:change where WORD defaults to for saving

First, if you don't like the name of the file location, why not copy your files back to My Documents, and then delete the My Documents shorcut folder?

After that, go into Word's options by clicking the Orb, and then on the Save tab, you can specify the default locations. This is assuming you have Office 2007.

Make sure that the OWNER of the folder is your 'user profile' OR the 'Administrators' group. Then assign the proper permissions per user group or per user profile.

Hey Windows 8 experts,

I just installed Windows 8.1 and I notice that after installing some software and wanting to save the registration keys as a text file during setup I would get this error message:

"You don't have permission to save to this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission." Would you like to save to your Documents folder instead?

But once I say yes to saving to the Documents folder and completing the setup, I have no troubles moving the file to another location using the Windows file explorer. (I just have to confirm that I have admin rights when I do so)

Is this normal behavior?

Answer:You Dont Have Permission to Save to this Location...

Yes it is totally normal. Windows by default protects the system folders like Windows and Program Files so that even an administrative user cannot save into them. As you mentioned you can save file in question elsewhere and then move files to these protected system folders but even then by default you will be asked to confirm the move and use built-in administrative rights, see screenshot:

"You don't have permission to save to this location. Contact the administrators to obtain permission. Would you like to save in the Documents folder instead?"

This message randomly pops up when I am trying to save something to the desktop, like a newly created .txt file or .png.

When it happened today, I selected "yes", it took me to my Documents folder, but instead of saving it there, I pulled down the menu, selected desktop, whereupon it saved it to the desktop, no problem.

What's up with that??

Answer:You dont have permission to save to this location

1. In File Explorer Right-click on the C: drive

2. Left-click on Properties.
3. Click on the Security tab.
4. In the first window click on Administrators (your computer name-PC Administrators).
5. Just below the window click on Edit.
6. Click on Administrators (your computer name-PC Administrators) again.
7. Here's the key to making it work. If Apply is grayed-out, check a box in the Deny column. It will then bring up Apply.

8. Check a box in the Allow column. It should check all of the boxes except the last one and uncheck all of the boxes in the Deny column.
9. Click Apply. It should run a scan of the files in the drive. When the scan is finished, click Ok. The first box should still be open.
10. In the first window, click on Users (your computer name-PC\Users) and repeat steps 5-9, of course clicking on Users (your computer name-PC\Users)
instead of Administrators (your computer name-PC Administrators).
NOTE: You may not have to click in the Deny column after the first scan is completed for step 10 as indicated in step 7.

When you click on the "Set Program Access and Computer Defaults" link, does the UAC prompt appear? If Yes, then you should anser Yes. If No, then try resetting the UAC settings to the defaults, or better yet, to their maximum setting.

Answer:Administrator doesn't have permission to save files

Right click and run notepad as administrator.

Also you want to be editing C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts not C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.txt as the hosts file doesn't have a .txt extension. If you have a .txt on the end you want to rename it.

Running as an administrator allows you to adopt administrator authority by right clicking and selecting "Run as Administrator" - it doesn't automatically do it. The hosts file is owned by SYSTEM and I wouldn't change it.

My computer has only one user account, since I'm the only person who uses it, and that account has administrator rights.

Hello,
I am running Microsoft Word 2000, Windows XP SP2.

The problem I am having is trying to save edited MS Word documents on a usb flash drive. After I have done some editing with my word document and try to save it to the usb flash drive, the error messages "Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error" prompted into his screen. I then discovered that the file was deleted from the flash drive whenever he try to save the file directly to flash drive.

I can duplicate the scenario and get the same problem over and over again.

So fare this only seems to happen with MS Word documents being saved on the USB drive. If I save a word doc on the C drive, open it, and edit it, it allows me to save the file with the updates to the C drive as normal.

Any suggestions? I'm not sure what a "file permission error is". I am using Norton Internet Security 2007, and I have tried disabiling it, thinking that it was a secuirty problem related to Norton, but that did not work either.

Please advise if you can help me.

Thank you
 

Answer:Word cannot complete the save due to a file permission error

Hi

Depending on you flash drive, it could be write protected. There may be a small slider switch to move. Do you have a secure flash drive? These flash drives offer secure sections on the flash drive and you may need to use the software that came with the drive to unlock it.

It could also be faulty!

Hope this helps

I have a user when he browses to the share he can drill down to all folders and see all documents but when he tries to save a file he gets a message that
the location does not exist. I changed the drive letter to the unc path in the same browser window and now he can save. It can not be permissions since he can save when he browses to the location. It only seems to be a problem if he browses from the mapped
drive instead of the server name. So far this is what I have tried:

I mapped the share to a different drive letterI turned off offline files and deleted the cacheI have logged the user into a different computerI have cleared his profile and created a new oneI can save files to the other share on the same server no problemThe error returns file location not available not access denied, but I can open a file at the same time I have the error, it only happens when I saveThe share permissions are set to everyone full control the permissions of the folder are set by group I added the user in manually and still can't save.
If anyone has any solutions I would greatly appreciate the help.

Hi all

Just a stupid little problem with W7 I noticed which is VERY confusing but simple to fix.

I changed via the dialog the TEXT SIZE via the screen resolution in the control panel to CUSTOM SIZE.

With one of the newer "Cinema" or Very Wide screen (1680 X 900) displays after I'd increased the text size to over 160 % I didn't get the possibility to SAVE any documents any more via the SAVE AS button. The SAVE dialog would appear but the SAVE button was missing.

The effect was noticed in Office 2007 (all programs) Notepad etc etc.

Seems to be a Windows fault as this should not be allowed to happen.

on more traditional "Squarer" type monitors -- no problem.

I couldn't find the answer by googling but a bit of "trial and Error" fixed the problem.


Cheers

so i can't go on my admin account because it says profile can't be loaded so i have to change a value in regedit but a message pops up and says acess denied. I tried to give myself permission but acess is yet again denied so any help please? help will be appreciated.

Answer:Permission to Change regedit value

Try "run as Administrator" when starting regedit from a user account. Without Administrator credentials you are not going to be able to edit the registry.

According to Help and Support, to change a permission fjor a file do the following:

Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.

Click the Security tab, and then click Edit.

Do one of the following:
To set permissions for a user that is not listed under Group or user names, click Add, type the name of the user or group, click OK, select the permissions, and then click OK.

To change or remove permissions from an existing group or user, click the name of the group or user, select the permissions, and then select the permission to be changed, then click OK out of the Properties.

My problem is that when i get to "Permissions" everything is grayed out so I can not change anything.

Need so help please.

Thank you

Hello,

I've been trying to download the Texas Holdem Poker 3D edition for my Windows 7,Ultimate x64.
I acknowledged the fact that the 3D edition isn't supported by W7 x64, but have derived yet another medium of achieving my means. With a little bit of help from Google, I've downloaded a Winzip THP 3D game for vista. I extracted the file. The read-me of the file instructs me to:
Enter the windows regedit and several successions of instructions starting from the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE that brings me to the Title finally.
I right-click and 'Permissions for Titles' opens up.
I see 4 topics under the Group or usernames :
Systems
Administrators
Users
Trusted Installer

So as the read-me advices me to select the Administrators, I do the needful.
Then opens up another tab called Permissions for Administrators where I see three options and two check-boxes on the right side.
Full control
Read
Spcl. permissions

I tick the 'Allow' check-box for the Full control option.

When I click on Apply changes, the error message is displayed:

Unable to change permission changes on titles
Access Denied
Please help!


EDIT:
Oh please reply.
I guess my question's too complex.

Basically I wanted to change the 'title permissions' for the admin so that I could effectively use the poker application.

Answer:Is unable to change permission changes on files.

Only "TrustedInstaller" can modify those registry keys.
