  • Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 8

    Information
    This will show you how to add Take Ownership to the context menu of all files, folders, and drives in Windows 8 to be able to quickly grant your administrator account ownership of a file, folder (and all contents), or drive (and all contents), and grant full access permission to the administrators group by right clicking on the file, folder, or drive and clicking on Take Ownership.


    Application files, (EX: EXE, CMD, MSI) will still have Run as administrator instead of Take Ownership in the context menu.


    NOTE
    When you right click on a file, folder, or drive, and click on Take Ownership, you may be prompted by UAC for permission to do so first.


    If you are logged in as an administrator, you would click on Yes to approve.


    If you are logged in as a standard user, you would need to enter the administrator's password to approve.
