  • How do I remove the Windows.old folder (for Windows 7)?

    If that doesn't delete the Windows.old folder:
    In Windows Explorer you should see a folder called Windows.old on your C: drive. If you don't need anything in the folder it is safe to delete - right click on it and click delete.

    How to Grant Permissions in Windows

    1. Locate the file or folder in which you want to take ownership in Windows Explorer.
    2. Right click on file or folder and select Properties from the Menu
    3. Click on the Security tab, then click the Edit button. Click OK to confirm UAC elevation request if needed.
    4. Select user/group from permission windows or click add to add other user or group (you may need to do this for multiple users - ex: administrator and your own user account).
    5. Now under the Permission section check the rights which you want for the user i.e check "Full Control" under the "Allow" column to assign full access rights control permissions to the user.
    6. Click OK for changes to take effect, and click OK again to exit from the Properties window.
