PowerShell command to enable security permissions inheritance for the %tmp% folder within Windows 10

A certain Windows 10 Pro computer that I support has an issue where the enable security permissions inheritance for the %tmp% folder keeps getting disabled.

This %tmp% folder is located in its default location of C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp

What is the power shell command that will re-enable security permissions inheritance for the %tmp% folder within a Windows 10 OS?

You can try to use

Get-ChildItem c:\ | Get-NTFSAccessInheritance

I believe if you'll modify path to this C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp it should work too but I did not tested it.
