Can someone explain to me what exactly is 'change' permissions on a file or folder?

Is that just unchecking 'FULL' control.

Thanks

change is read/write/execute.  I don't believe it includes delete or create, but could be wrong.

Technet describes it like this

Change Permissions
      
Allows or denies changing permissions of the file or folder, such as Full Control, Read, and Write.
