Hi

I am trying to change the permission from Limited to Designer in Sharepoint 2010, but the Limited access option is ticked and greyed out. It seems to override the higher access.

Also the previous IT guy left and his account was deleted. I have admin right, but haven't got  permission to view the "owner group" in sharepoint 2010. Is there a way to find out what is my permission level good for?

When you say you have "admin right", I suppose you mean Windows local or domain Adminstrators group membership.   By default, local or domain Administrators have Farm Administrator rights in SharePoint.  This will not directly give you control over site content, but it gives the ability to grant that control for each site collection.

Now you need to use that to give yourself rights for each site collection.  For small site, you probably have only one site collection.  You can do this using the SharePoint Central Administration site.  Do you know the URL for that?  On the SharePoint central Administration site, you need to make yourself the site owner (primary or secondary) for each site collection.

Site collection ownership can only be granted to individual accounts, not to groups.
