This needs to be run from an elevated command prompt.

ICACLS FileName /deny User:Permission NP

If the file is called test.txt
You want to DENY the Modify permission to EVERYONE and do not want it to propagate inherit


ICACLS test.txt /deny Everyone:Modify NP

Add /Q  for Quiet....


ICACLS test.txt /deny Everyone:Modify NP /Q
