Just got a new computer and am setting it up. I setup one user during the install. I've gone to computer -> manage -> Local Users and Groups and have verified that my user is in the admin group.
It looks like I'm missing a few things though. In folder options there is no "advanced settings" section for me to turn on file extensions.
If I try to navigate to c:/users/username/Application Data it says Access Denied. My old computer was part of a domain and I had admin rights. On that computer I had access to the application data folder.
I have two related questions:
How do I get access to my application data folder?
How do I get it so I can turn on file extensions under folder options?
I asked this as one question because I believe the root cause is the same, although I could definitely be wrong.
