Can anyone help me find my way through Windows 7 to this part of Microsoft's secret lair of original software?
The person below said exactly what I was going to say on the Microsoft Answers site about my Windows 7 problem, and got the crappiest answer imaginable. I want to access “Docs and Settings” to tweak things I need to tweak on a new computer setup, not look at docs, pics, or movies—but it seems I am being denied access!
I can’t open the “My documents and settings” folder, it says I don’t have permission. I’ve tried to change the security settings to allow me full control, but despite being an administrator I still ‘don’t have permission’. I am the only user account on the computer. No other user accounts are visible so why can’t I change things on my own computer? Do you have any ideas that might help me?
According to the Microsoft site: The “My Documents and Settings” is not a folder used anymore, it is a “junction point, to redirect older programs to the new folders now in the Users folder.” It is intended that users have no access to these junction points
What’s a poor self-admin to do who just wants to transfer her Mozilla bookmarks/history .json file [and similar tasks] to a new computer?
