Hello, I am back. After so many years of not writing anything. I know, nobody is reading either 🙂
Once in a while I get permission error in Windows 10 temp folder, and it will lead to problem like I cannot zip the file “Send to zip” and creating temporary files when running some other software. I am not sure quiet why the problem kept coming back to hunt me, but I need to fix the permission issue if want the other software work as usual.
Here is how to fix the permission issue in temp folder in Windows 10
- Run cmd with administrator right. Quick launch would be
Win +r, cmd, Ctrl +Shift + Enter
- Enable administrator access with takeown command below
TAKEOWN /F C:\Users\AAA\AppData\Local\Temp /R /D Y
- Fix the permission with icacls
ICACLS “C:\Users\AAA\AppData\Local\Temp” /reset /T
If you happen to know the “real” reason why the tmp folder was reset to no permission issue, do share with me.
