    Take Ownership on Right-Click

    Don't know if anyone but me likes to have this handy, but it sure is -- works in Windows 7 too.

    Take Ownership

    Good tip Chuck. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    But, since this is an international forum, you should post any other relevant information about the hack. Like this tidbit from a January 21, 2009 reply....

    Sorry Doc, I've always been "language-challenged", so I'm a bit slow about that sort of thing.

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Don't be sorry Chuck. I wasn't being critical. That's a heck of a tip !!!

    I just wanted all the other Loungers to know that this hack was for English only and that there was one available for German. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    I' glad you liked that one Doc.

    I sometimes think I'm the only one that likes to "tinker"; and no doubt this makes it easier.

    Chuck

    Re: Take Ownership on Right-Click

    Just out of interest, how often do you find you need to Take Ownership?

    I suppose over the 13 or so years since NT 3.51, I've had to do it about once a year!

    not terribly often Batcher, it's just that when it *is* needed, having it readily available is quite a helpful thing.
