TakeOwnershipPro is a freeware app that allows you to take control of file and folder ownership permissions. Essentially, it lets you take control of resources in Windows. It's not easy to use, but comparatively, requires much less effort than other programs, like Anvi Folder Locker Free and Cyberduck.
Additionally, TakeOwnershipPro will allow you to change permissions of a file and also allows you to lock out non-administrator users of the directory or file. Taking ownership of a file in Windows isn’t easy, even with non-administrator users of the directory or file. This program streamlines the process and takes you through the process step-by-step.
TakeOwnershipPro has a no-nonsense user interface. It's simple and makes it usable for even the most novice of users. Actual usage of the app is equally as straightforward: either drop or drag-down your file or add it the normal way. You’re now one click away from granting yourself complete control and all the available permissions. To make your life even easier, TakeOwnershipPro adds itself to the right menu of Windows Explorer.
Effortless control of files and folders
Not only does TakeOwnershipPro help you take control of files and folders, but it can also do the same for all subfolders and the contained files. The task is initiated with the click of a button and displays a notification message once it’s completed.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t include options to assign ownership to other users, which would make a huge difference in terms of ease of use.
A brief summary of all the features this app offers are as follows:
- Drag folders and files to the program and grant yourself access rights quickly.
- Effortlessly take ownership by right-clicking the folders and files that you're denied access to.
- Fix the ‘Cannot Delete’ or ‘Access Denied’ issues.
- Take ownership of numerous folders and files at the same time.
- Complete installation/uninstallation support.
The simplest freeware app
TakeOwnershipPro is the simplest of freeware apps. From the user interface to the steps required to use it, it doesn't get much easier. It's also free, which sets it apart from most comparable applications.
