Windows 10 is very intrusive, filled with malware, spyware, clickerware, trackingware, snifferware (whatever you want to call it!) to see and watch what EVERYONE on Earth is doing!

Method 1. Using File Explorer to take ownership of a folder or a file

  1. Open File Explorer, and then locate the folder or file you want to take ownership of.
  2. Right-click the folder or file, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.

  3. Click the Advanced button. The Advanced Security Settings window will appear. Here you need to change the Owner of the key.
  4. Click the Change link next to the Owner: label, then the Select User or Group window will appear.

    Select the user account via the Advanced button or just type your user account in the area which says 'Enter the object name to select' and click OK.
  5. Optionally, to change the owner of all subfolders and files inside the folder, select the check box Replace owner on subcontainers and objects in the Advanced Security Settings window. Click OK to change the ownership.
  6. Now you need to provide full access to the file or folder for your account. Right-click the folder or file again, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.
  7. Click the Add button. The Permission Entry window will appear on the screen:
  8. Click Select a principal and select your account:
  9. Set permissions to Full control:

    Press Ok to save changes.
  10. Optionally, click Replace all existing inheritable permissions on all descendants with inheritable permissions from this object in the Advanced Security Settings window.
  11. What it means is permissions on this parent object will replace those on its descendant objects. When cleared, permissions on each object, whether parent or its descendant, can be unique. Click OK to get full access to the folder or file.

Method 2. Using third party tools to take ownership of a folder or a file
