    You can of course change the permissions back:

    Open File Explorer.

    Browse to the system file you previously changed ownership.
    Right-click the file, and select Properties.
    Click on the Security tab.
    Click the Advanced button.

    On the "Advanced Security Settings" page, click the Change link on Owner.

    On the "Select User or Group" page, type the following to add the TrustedInstaller account and click Check Names:

    NT Service\TrustedInstaller

    Click OK.

    Click Apply.

    Click OK again to complete the task.

    These steps now restored the ownership of the file to the built-in TrustedInstaller.

    Also, don't forget to check the "Replace owner on the sub-containers and objects" and "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" options, if you previously changed these settings on system folders.

    Finally, if you granted yourself full control to the system file, you may also want to remove these settings as well, and to do that you can use the following steps:

    Right-click the system file, and select Properties.
    Click on the Security tab.
    Click the Advanced button.
    On the "Advanced Security Settings" page select your account.
    Click Remove.

    Once you've un-hidden the folders and found the WindowsApps folder, you'll next need to take ownership of said folder. To do this, follow instructions on

    this website
    from intowindows.com (not a Microsoft owned website).
    Be very careful when performing this. A mistake could cause serious problems for your PC.

    It won't. You're only taking ownership of one folder, it won't cause serious issues. It's perfectly safe, I build these things. I would suggest that it's always good practice to make a backup of any files you try to edit.

    Hi,

    Windows 10 games whether they are on Microsoft's PC game pass App or Play Anywhere titles, use the standard Windows Universal Platform for installation. This places all downloads (apps and games) into a hidden Windows folder called 'WindowsApps'.

    If your game or app is installed on C:\ drive, the WindowsApps
    hidden folder will be located within the 'Program Files' folder. On other drives the folder will be located in the root location of the drive e.g.
    D:\WindowsApps

    Once you've un-hidden the folders and found the WindowsApps folder, you'll next need to take ownership of said folder. To do this, follow instructions on

    this website
    from intowindows.com (not a Microsoft owned website).

    This does not require you download or install anything, just follow the instructions in the link.

    Hope that helps

    I would agree with this. Many years ago Curse took over the folders for World of Warcraft for interface mods. The game was then not able to update. Always be careful messing with Registry's or hidden files on windows systems.
