Hi, there, I'm trying to reclaim my permissions from TrustedInstaller and getting in a pickle, followed instructions from a website, added my Name and email as owner so far so good, but when I tried to delete stuff like 'Bing Weather' it comes up 'you don't have permission' blah blah. I think the pc thinks I am the Administrator not the Owner, hope I'm making sense? Can someone please talk me through how to sort this out, I'm not a great techie, many thanks x

The Trusted Installer account is used internally by Windows. It has all modification rights to the machine, because some account has to have it in order to install stuff. So Trusted Installer was chosen to be that account.

To uninstall apps, you go to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features. There you can click on any app and the uninstall option button is shown. Note that there are some apps that cannot be uninstalled and the uninstall option is greyed out.

If you want rights to some file that you don't have access to. Go to the Security tab of Properties and go into Advanced. There you have to change the owner to yourself. Then go back up one level and you can now press the Edit button and add your account in, and give it full rights to the file on the lower part of the screen.

Thank you, Lunar, I'll try this.
