    Can't create folders on desktop or save files there.

    Been happening for a few days. This is the error I get.

    BTW my account is an administrator account, and this is my own desktop.

    Sorry, wrong forum. Should be in Windows 10 forum.

    I was able to correct this by changing the permissions on Desktop to full control.


    The question now is how did this happen in the first place, since this is a change in behaviour?

    It may have started after cumulative update KB3093266.

    This happened to me and I pined it down to a time that I got a message while transferring photos to a external HDD. It said "There is a problem with this computer" or something close to that."would you like windows to repair it" and I stupidly agreed. I latter realized it had changed my permissions.

    I don't remember a message like that, but then I don't remember everything.

    Thanks for moving this to Win 10 forum. Hopefully someone with an answer will see this.

    If it worked at some point in the near past on Windows 10 try using a System Restore point to when it was working.
