Hello all,
I have an issue. I recently decided to delete a secondary admin account from my windows 7 setup. I opted for the "keep the files" option in the account deletion process so I could save some of the files at a later time. Now I am trying to delete the folder that was placed on the desktop but it says I dont have permission. I've tried taking ownership and granting permission but it still say I dont have permission. I just want to delete the folder once and for all. Can anyone help...thank you!

try these steps, then before deleting the administrator account again, move your folder and edit the permissions from within the administrator account.


it sounds to me like you just had some unfinished business, deleted the account a little prematurely and need it in order to edit the permissions that are currently only accessible to it.
