When trying to save an image to my Pictures folder in Windows 10, I receive an error message that states I don't have permission to save in this location and that I should contact the administrator to obtain permission.
I'm the only user on this computer and I'm an administrator. What am I doing wrong? What settings do I need to change to allow me to save in this location? I can save files to other folders, but no the Pictures folder.
As with many I have upgraded to Windows 10 today and it is going well except for the fact I am unable to save any files or create new ones in the Documents and Pictures folders or any sub-folders within these folders. For instance, I tried to save an image created in paint and attempted to save it in the Pictures folder, it gave me the error message seen in this picture below:
Note, I am the only user on the system, and also the admin account so I do not know why it says this. Clicking Yes on the box does nothing and the same thing still occurs afterward. In addition, bringing up the right click menu and going to new only allows me to create a new folder, and the windows admin shield icon appears next to it. Deleting files also prompts me to ask for admin permission but in that case I can simply click the continue button and it goes through.
I tried to do a search but it didn't come up with much. where the Save/SaveAs/Open dialogs don't open and instead the app crashes? I've seen it in Notepad, Paint and Word. If I kill all explorer.exe processes, and then launch for example Notepad from Task Manager, the issue goes away, but as soon as I reboot, it returns.
I'm running Office 2003 in Windows 10 (upgraded from Windows 7) with no visible issues.
Except that when I want to save a Word document using "Save As" it prompts me for all sorts of unsuitable locations...My Music, My Pictures, My Videos, and some random programs which somehow landed up in the "Documents" folder. None of the shortcuts I'd like to see there (and which are in the folder, because I put them there!) show up. What to do?
I'm not tech savvy nor do I pretend to understand much of the content in this forum; however, I'm trying really hard to like Windows 10 (Edge) and think I'm missing something. I came from Win7 and have spent the last three days using Windows 10. I do a lot of research and loved the fact I could highlight a word or phrase, RC on search "Google" and have instant results. In addition, if I wanted to save something to the desktop....RC and save to desktop...very simple. Am I correct in thinking I now need several convoluted steps to get the same things done if I can do them at all? I know I can use a different search engine and get the job done but Edge is reputed to be faster.
everytime i change the settings in there it wont let me save it even when i mark the make all the boot settings permanent. im using windows 10 i wanna change the maximum memory to 8192 which now is 0 and cant hide all microsoft services .
After a recent update or something, on the top right of all my photo's (no matter what folder), there is two large blue arrows, pointing at each other. I have tried clicking, and right-clicking and I can't find any use for them.
All the picture/images I created or downloaded in Windows 7 are unreadable in Windows 10 (or in Windows 8). When I try to open them in Windows 10 or in an image viewer app in Windows 10 I get an "Unknown Format". how I can properly access them in Windows 10 Pro?
Since upgrading to Windows 10, I have found are no pictures on the Amazon UK web site ( and Amazon.com). only icons with" x "where there normally pictures normally are. This applies equally whether using Chrome, Edge or Firefox. I have explored "settings" but cannot find anything that would preclude images being shown, My netbook using Windows 7 does not have any problems displaying the images.
This is another by-product of the start menu problem. Once finished with major issues I tried to open my pictures. The pictures are not in windows Photo Gallery but directly on my C drive ie: C:/users/ottilitgirl/Pat's Pictures/Christmas 2014. The pictures do not open and I get this message "This action only valid for products that are currently installed".I just tried again. Today I get the thumbnails but when I try to open them the message is "invalid value for registry"
My wife want to move some pics from one of our pc,s to another in another room in house to print.Pics are in another room on laptop which is Windows 10.She wants to move them from there to main pc which is Windows 7.I know nothing about how to do this,and there one pic in there she needs to send to someone.
I have recently downloaded Windows 10. My clients will send me a PDF document, and up until now I have been saving them to a specified folder. Now when I try to save it says something like "you do not have permission, contact administrator" I am signed on as administrator.
Since downloading my " free windows 10 " I cant see how to download / save any photos...when I try to a window opens giving my just the option of "windows picture viewer" but that doesn't seem to be installed, just an app for "photos" and my my photos do not appear, I can not download anything from my camera either.
Vista had file box at the top of e-mail page that would allow saving e-mails. Windows 10 has no file box thst I can find. Have clicked everything on e-mail pages. Also I see no archive selection so I am using chats.
Whenever I try to 'save as' in a documents folder, it flashes up "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?" When I click 'Yes' I just go round in circles to be told I do not have permission??? I have followed instructions to 'Run as administrator' and on a couple of occasions I have managed to save things (I'm not sure how??) but next time I go into it, it reverts back to the same error message. Also it is hit and miss, and near impossible to search and locate any files.
Just upgraded to Windows 10.I load an Excel file named say "Statistics" from my C:UsersGoogleDrivePersonal folder, I edit the file. I want to save the file with the edits (same name, overwriting existing file).With Windows 7 I just hit the save button within Excel.Now with Windows 10 I can't save to the original location.A message appears " Your changes could not be saved to C:UsersGoogleDrivePersonal folderStatistics because of a sharing violation. Try saving to a different file."
