I changed the ownership of the windowsapps folder to my windows user name and gave myself full control over the folder and its subfolders etc.  However, despite the fact that I can now explore inside those folders I cannot paste a file into those folders. I get the following message:
"Destination folder access denied". How can I solve this?
Thanks

It should work. Please post either the Security tab info of affected, i.e. access denied, folder or use ICACLS and post output.

Sorry, I do not follow. I am obviously less savvy than you are imagining. Could you please tell me exactly what I need to do? Thanks

logon to machine as local administrator or account gaving local administrators group membership

Navigate to your folder and open properties\advanced\owner tab and grant your account ownership, select "replace owner on sub containers" and click OK, then close all property windows

again open property window and assign your account full control with selecting "propogate permissions on sub folders and files and then check if it works
