"Take ownership of everything" resumes it pretty much.
I am the only user (and Admin) in my Win 8.1 Core 64 bit system and I need to be able to change the registry and all files and folders on my system on EVERY drive, internal or external (the latter whether NTFS or FAT).
I went through the procedure of taking ownership of an external USB drive (to which the drive letter G got assigned) and all went fine, then I unplugged the flashdrive and I plugged a new one that also got the G letter (I was optimist/naive enough to believe that the previous procedure would have sufficed, but apparently I was wrong!). Do I need to go through all that again for every single USB device I plug in??? Really???
Now, while I see the necessity of tightening security across the system for the average user (I do not want to start a debate on that) I would really like to have the chance to just use my own computer the way I want.
Can somebody please provide a simple and straightforward method that can PERMANENTLY enable me to do that without having to click on allow this or permit that every time I just want to add a single vowel to a .txt file?
Apologies for my excessive ranting
