Windows 7: Quick Way To Take Ownership Of File/Folder

Guess what is the most annoying part of Windows 7? Every time you try to access a system file/folder you get “Permission Denied” error. The only way to override this error is to take ownership of that file/folder, which is quite a lengthy and tiresome process which is hated by almost every system administrator.

Thanks to Take Ownership Shell Extension developed by Rizone, taking ownership of file/folder in just a click away. Just launch the tool, hit Install, and you will find Take Ownership option in the Windows Explorer right-click context menu. Launch the app again, hit Uninstall, and the option will be removed.
