This is the place to be for Windows 10.

I'll just jump in here - I have done the update from W8.1 to W10 2 days ago and as a novice over 50yo, I pushed a button. I'll just add in here that my subscription for Office 365 expired 3 days ago - don't know what relevance this has. But I can't save/ move/ edit / delete files and picture. Error says: Destination Folder Access denied - You'll need to provide administration permission to copy this folder (with a continue button) or File Access Denied - You'll need to provide permission to move this file without any options. I have an Acer521 laptop and have still got Classic Shell 8 installed from the old W8.1 (don't know if this is relevant either). I can copy / save/ and move anything on "Desktop" but that's looking rather full now. Can someone help. Plse

check security settings under properties for folders you are trying to access

Thanks for your help. I read this part way through {What kind of permissions do you need beyond "full" in order to take ownership? }.
I'm don't profess to being a fan of computer jargon but "Why do I now have to have permission to do all the stuff I use to before 03/08/15 when I upgrading to Windows 10"? My mistake. shouldn't have done it in the first place. I will take it to a tech to fix.

Actually - gsimpson - I have found the listing you mentioned are different in my Desktop folder than in my Documents folder - so I will work on that. Thanks so much.
