Is there a way to avoid permission and authentication checks to make edits to a folder and it content? I have a program that rename, duplicate and relocate files from one folder to another. The challenge is that some folders deny me access. What can I do to turn off the excess security that is Windows 7 has?
Thanks in advance.
Prohibit Authentication Check on Editing a Folder and its Content
You are encountering a problem because the Action feature on Windows 7 has been activated which is a security measure, hence the deny permission & authentication. To deactivate it,
Open the Control Panel.
Select the System Icons.
On that page Select Action Center.
On the drop-down select Off to deactivate Action Center.
Click OK to close the dialog box & save the settings.
Here is a screenshot of the deactivation on Control Panel,
That should enable you work on your files again without difficulty.
