Hi Somchai Edp

You can change the owner field by opening the task from and typing the new owner in the Owner field of the task form. You must then re-save the task to retain the new owner's name.

Are you facing any problem in this?

        I cannot type in the owner field like a readonly field. (i log on the window as power user.)

If you're the one who created the task, I don't believe you can change the ownership of that task -HOWEVER- you can assign that task to someone.
