Sometimes even if you are logged in as Administrator,while modifying some important files, windows shows this message saying that you don’t have administrative rights to make the change.It can be done in few simple steps to change the administrative rights and get full control over the system.
Just follow these steps to get administrative rights.
First, right click on the file that you want to change the administrative rights and select properties
In the property box select the security tab.
Now select the group or user name
When you click on “edit” option and a new permission box opens where you can change the permissions but you can only change “deny” settings. However “allow” setting can’t be changed. So we need to disable the inheritance.
