You don’t currently have permission to access this folder.

Problem : Whenever trying to access files or folders which current login account don't have permission but belong to administrator group, the system will prompt :

You don’t currently have permission to access this folder.


If you click continue button , the system will add the current login account into the ACL which you might want it to happen because this will mess up your ACL.

Solution : Run Explorer.exe as administrator.

You might see some solution suggest to run explorer.exe as administrator. If you create a shortcut at desktop to launch the explorer.exe and right click select Run As Administrator. But soon or later you will notice the problem still remain.

After searching around , I found the trick which a lot of them didn't mention in their answer.

The trick : Modify the registry.

Changing the registry setting “RunAs” to “_RunAs” in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{CDCBCFCA-3CDC-436f-A4E2-0E02075250C2}.

Tested on my machine , this trick is working.
