Setting File and Folder Permissions
Windows 8 runs on NTFS, which allows users to set file and folder
permissions. These permission settings enable you to specify which users can view a
particular file or a whole folder on your computer. In fact, file permissions in
Windows 8 are so detailed that you can even give a person the ability to read
your files while preventing him or her from saving any changes. For the sake
of privacy, file permissions are very helpful because they allow you to prevent
other users from even being able to gain access to your private folders.
Setting the permissions on files and folders is easy to do. Just follow these steps:
1. Right-click any file or folder for which you want to modify permissions
and click Properties.
2. Click the Security tab and click the Advanced button.
3. Disable inheritance by clicking the Disable Inheritance button.
Inheritance means the permissions from a parent folder are automatically
applied to child folders.
4. Remove all users from the Permission Entries list that you do not want to
have access to this file or folder.
