one computer, 7 users accounts need to share admin documents

Q: one computer, 7 users accounts need to share admin documents

I want to be able to share Administrator documents and files with user acoounts on the same computer.... without having access to the internet.


I only have one computer. But I have 7 different user accounts on that one computer. I want each of my users to have access to the Administrators documents (files and folders etc)

I went to Administrator Documents, then I Right clicked on a folder, then I clicked on Share With>specific people> I click on the user account and then I get a box saying my folder was succcessfully shared, and now I need to email a link to the specific user account.

I do all this and then switch user. I go to the users email and try to click on the link and it wont click. I try to copy and paste into the users documents, but it will not copy and paste.

I go to the user's Documents and try to see if there is a link there....but nothing is there.

What am I doing wrong?
thanks

Preferred Solution: one computer, 7 users accounts need to share admin documents

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: one computer, 7 users accounts need to share admin documents

I looked thru HELP, but I have only a single computer. I am not trying to interact with other computers, so I cant belong to a domain, workgroup or homegroup, because all these seem to involve multiple computers.

There is a user, Dad, with admin privileges on a Windows 7 machine (this is me).

There are other users, kid1 and kid2, with no admin privileges (my kids ;-) )

I want to let kid1 and kid2 access the contents of a directory in my userspace C:\Users\Dad\ . In fact it's not at the top level, let's say it's C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud\photos (because it is). I want to let kid1 have read/write access and kid2 read only access.

I navigated my way to C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud and then right-clicked on photos, clicked on properties, clicked on the sharing tab, and did what looked like the sensible thing (gave the kids the required access).

I then logged in as kid2 and attempted to find my way to C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud\photos. I got there -- but on the way I saw far too much -- kid2 can see a complete list of the names of all files and directories in D:\Users\Dad (not ideal) and also names of all files and directories in C:\Users\Dad\ownCloud (which is not acceptable, because that is my entire life in the cloud).

Is this expected behaviour when sharing directories in Windows? If not, what did I do wrong?

If so then this is no good and I guess I need a workaround. The problem is that I am not at all sure that I can move the directory, because it part of a cloud storage service (like Dropbox, but a different company) and as far as I know that directory ...\ownCloud\photos (the one I want to share with my kids) must be a subdirectory of ...\ownCloud (the one that I really don't want my kids ...

A:Admin wants to share a directory with non-admin users

NTFS Folder Permissions

I'm thinking if you create a symbolic link in C:\Users\Public you may be able to let the kids go directly to the shared folder. Perhaps then you can deny Traverse permission to block the parent folder. But I haven't done it myself.

Stoik Joker,who has the NTFS permissions page in the above link, is also a regular poster on DonationCoder.com. You may be able to ask for clarifications there. And of course someone with SysAdmin type experience may chime in here.

If you succeed using external info please post the solution.

My laptop has only ever had one admin user account with full access to sensitive information, but I have now added a non-admin account which needs occasional access to restricted content.

I want to give temporary access only to a personal folder.

It seems that once the non admin user opens the specific restricted folder (and I input my admin password), this gives permanent access to this folder. To deny access again, I have to log back into my admin account and click 'Stop Sharing'.

Is there a way to time-out access, or have access automatically suspended via switch user/log off?

Many thanks

Hi there, I'm sat here at my mum's at the moment, and she really needs to me help fix a computer error for her I've googled and searched and can't seem to fix the error, if you could help me asap I would really appreciate it please

Basically, she has two user accounts on her pc - both set to admin. She uses admin B all the time and admin A rarely.

Admin A contains Microsoft Office (preinstalled on the pc), but she can't access it from Admin B - which is what she ultimately wants to do.

How can I set it so she can access it from her regular admin account (B)?

I hope this is clear enough and thank so much in advance of your kind help

Hello,
I was trying to figure out a way to block admin share access over windows domain network.
These are my requirements:

Desktop Support Engineers should have administrator privileges on all domain joined windows workstation machines. Domain Users should not have administrator privileges on their workstations.Desktop support engineers should not be able to access admin share over the network.Domain Admin must have full access on Admin Share.
So I have added NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE as a member of Buit-In administrators group and I have added Desktop Support Group as a member of NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE.
Which actually blocked admin share access over network for Desktop support engineers. however I was not able to control Domain Users getting Administrative privileges on domain joined PCs from above settings.

How can I control this admin share access?   

Thanks in advance.

A:Admin Accounts saving on other users on Vista Ultimate

You are going to need to save it to a shared folder and then log out and into the other account, then you can move or copy the file from the shared folder to the current users Documents folder.

By the way, you are NOT "The Administrator" but a member of the Admin group.

Hey everyone,

First post here as we are having some issues at my job. We're a small sized school district and we are in the process of currently attempting to create a universal image to roll out across the district. As part of the initial process, we are following a spiceworks directed tutorial to create the image and we are enabling the local administrator account. After imaging, there are a few other things that need to be done on each individual machine so we have a "tech" folder set up to allow our techs to go step by step to get the machine to where we want it to be. Once a machine is imaged, it is then added to our domain.
The issue we are having is that whether we place this 'tech' folder on the desktop, the Admin's desktop, or the Admin's My Documents folder: any other user on the computer (even non-admins) are getting access to the Administrator's user folders (including desktop and documents). This means that any enterprising student can search hard enough and find it, and then access the files in the tech folder.

Now, it is our practice to then disable the local admin account after imaging, before sending the machine out. However, on the off chance one of the techs forgets or has a lapse in procedure, this could result in a few non-critical, but still important, pieces of software being accessible to all users.

Our question is this: What could be causing this lapse in policy? Or are we misunderstanding the way Win7 operates the local Admin acc... Read more

A:How do I prevent all users access to the local Admin's My Documents

No users have access to any other user's profile directory. "C:\Users\[username]" The only way they can get access is if they are an Administrator. The next way is if you are changing the permissions to give everyone access. But the default state for Windows is no user has access to another user's profile directory. Most likely you have done something to set it up to give users access or your method for detecting this is flawed. (I.e. you are using an Admin account to check the access of the directory, an Admin account can and will override permissions to give itself access.)

okay. freshly into win7 now, having obtained a new hdd for my comp. I have been running as the admin of my computer since accounts became an unavoidable thing. barring the occasional frustration-induced blunder I tend to stay Properly Paranoid in my habits to make sure I have no problems...

but win7 doesn't think that I could ever be intelligent enough to have full rights on any account other than the built-in admin account, which of course I'd want to avoid using outside emergencies that render other accounts damaged somehow.

so I'm looking to find out how to make another user account with FULL admin rights. not just the "constantly have to get permission" stuff that a standard*snort* admin account has, full rights that don't involve constantly having to "run as administrator"

yes yes I've heard people trying to get me more paranoid so that I'd endure the added hassles, all it does is make me more irate with the situation. so if noone's willing to provide me with instruction on this, it's probably best for the thread to be left to fall off the board.

I don't know what your problem is. To make another administrator account - Start - Control panel - User Account - 
Manage another account - Create a new account - Give it a name - put a check mark for Administrator - 
click - Create Account.

When you created user profiles you selected the individuals to have there own customizable desktops which is OK. However in doing so they do not share a specific program setup on anothers desktop as you found out. The easiest way to fix this is to create a shortcut to the main exe on the individuals desktop.

Most main program folders are maintained in C:\program files folders so use Windows Explorer and navigate there to verify. If it is there then do the following,
Step 1- Navigate to C:\Windows\Profiles\"Person name"\Desktop and click once to open folder.
Step 2- Once folder is open and you see contents in right pane then scroll the open left pane of Windows Explorer back to the C:\Program files folder and locate the main program icon within the folder for the specific program you wish to share and right click it and click create shortcut.
Step 3- Once shortcut is created locate it in the right pane list and right click and select cut.
Step 4- In left pane scroll back down to the users desktop folder and click once to open in right pane.
Step 5- Paste the shortcut there.
Step 6- Icon will appear on users desktop now.
Step 7- Close Windows Explorer.

Note: If for some reason main program is not located in C:\program files then locate the program folder and follow the same process.

I have a unusual case where I need to setup two mapped network drives as two different users to the same share location. When I attempt to map the second drive after inputting the user name and password the system goes on its merry way for a few seconds
and then returns me back to the username/password input.
If I change the second mapped network drive to use the IP address the two shares work happily. If I manipulate the host file and point two paths to the same address then I can also work around this problem. However, I would simply like to know why I am blocked
from setting two mapped drives to point to the same share with different credentials? 
e.g.
TestFolder on TestServer is shared to TestUser1 & TestUser2 where the IP of TestServer is 192.168.0.2.
Case1
If I map S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser2 it will not work. 
Case2
Mapping S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\192.168.0.2\TestFolder using TestUser2 it will work and I can access the folder as the two different users.
Case 3
If I map S: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1, if I then map T: to \\TestServer\TestFolder using TestUser1 it will also work (but I am accessing S: & T: as the same user). 
Why do cases 2 + 3 work, but case 1 does not?

Local admin account by definition has access to everything and even if it doesn't it can take ownership and give itself the rights. In other words i am not sure that you can achieve what you
are trying to do.



I would suggest create a single shared local admin account and give it your desktop admins, change the password every 60-90 days to keep it more secure. This is common practice in many
organizations.

Hello cbird, and welcome to Eight Forums.

By default, standard users are not able to create new accounts or do anything that effects anything other than just their user account.

The only way a standard account is able to create a new account is if that standard user entered the administrator's password when prompted by UAC when trying to do so through the Control Panel (icon view) -> User Accounts -> Manage Accounts.

Hi all

I can't find any mention of my problem on this or any other forum. Or at least I don't think I can... Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Here is my set-up:
Linksys DSL modem, connected to an Apple Airport Extreme wireless router. The modem is configured to be the DHCP server, the Airport is set to bridge mode. I have a new Compaq Presario desktop running Vista Home Basic with a Belkin wireless-G USB dongle. All of this discussion is about wireless, btw - I don't have a long enough CAT-5 cable to connect the Airport and PC.

I have 5 users set up on the PC - 1 true, unlocked administrator account and 4 standard users. When I boot up and connect as any of the 4 standard users they automatically detect and connect to the Airport, and receive IP addresses.

But when I change user to be the administrator the connection drops after a few seconds. The Airport network is visible to Vista, because it is in the list of available networks. But if I try to connect to it it fails, and the Vista diagnostic tool tells me it has been unable to connect 'for unknown reason'. One of the standard users used to have admin rights, and that account had exactly the same problem. If I log in from a boot-up as the administrator I also cannot connect to the network.

If the administrator account has been used and logged out the other users cannot connect to the Airport. I have to re-boot before they can connect again.

It sounds to me as though the administrator has made that directory path private. Are you the admin, and if so, are you logged into a user account with admin rights?

What is the best way to share execution priviledges between limited users, power users, and administrators?

Say an application has already been installed by a higher priviledged user type, and a limited user cannot execute it - e.g. an ISP login software, or Spy Sweeper. Note: ISP login software lacks profile, so I suppose I could just create that, however, Spy Sweeper is a head scratcher.

Should the application be uninstalled and reinstall under All Users? How do you install an application to allow All Users to use it?

I have already tried to use the "Run As" right-click Properties w/Shift key approach and that does not work.

Is there an approach with regard to local security policy that would do what I want to do? How is that done? Or, is Access Control List the way to go?

hi,
i have 3 computers. all with the same usernames and passwords and im wanting to share the same My Documents Folder for the different users
i.e all computers logged in as Martin will access the same My Documents folder with the same saved files and all computers logged in as bob will access bobs My documents folder etc

i currently have it set up as follows

i have a second hard drive in computer 1 with the different users My Documents Folder, ive shared them and connected all the computers to the network and configured them to recognise the My Documents folder on Computer 1.
I can see all the files in there but the trouble im having is saving files to it, all i keep getting is
'\\m-pc\d\Martin\Documents\_________.txt
You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.'

how do i obtain the permission? or is there an easier way to do it than the way im trying to set it up??

thank you in advance for any help
Martin

hi i don't know if you can actually do this but i would like to make it where
all users have all the same files folders desktop as i do.

reason: I've been locked out of logon before. i really prefer the simple welcome screen with no log on at all but i understand why you need to for security.

anyway, if i get locked out of logon it seems like it would be nice to have full access to all functions same desktop etc... to be able to easily go in and
fix it. all three logons are for myself with administrative privileges.

may sound crazy but sounds like it would be the easiest way to prevent
myself from being locked out.

example: in the past I've typed in my password and even chose no admin password
and have had logon rejected or hidden.

is this a stupid idea or possible?
thanks

IMO, the REAL solution for you is to use a password removal tool whenever you encounter this situation. There are several. All they do is clear the password(s) for the accounts. So whenever you can't remember your password, just clear it with the password removal tool. I use Ultimate Boot CD which has one.

Best,

I have one Win 8.1 computer that husband and I share. Also a printer and two external backup drives. I have an account as owner/administrator, and have created a standard user account for daily non-admin use that I changed permissions for to be able to read/write each of the folders under This PC. But, the new account can't see them.

I've been reading about "Public Folders" and "Homegroup" but really don't know what way to go. Do I need a Homegroup because of the printer/external drives? Or should I use Public Folders? If Folders, where exactly would I save new items, like a document or song? Would they have to be saved in the User/Public folders and then automatically show up in a matching folder in the Library, but not really saved there?

I'm technically fairly illiterate, and my husband is whatever is worse than that...so I want it to be as easy to share as possible.

I guess, in a nutshell, I'm just not understanding this part of 8.1.

Hello way2ob2se,

After reading your post, I'm still a bit lost as to what you primary goal is when establishing two accounts in your current situation. Specifically, do you want to limit/restrict access to one account because it seems like you are try to give full access to the second account. Now, if my assumptions are correct, then why not just share the same account? Please understand that I am not trying to undermine your intentions but right now I'm just not understanding the logic. So, maybe you could try and reword it; however, if you think you have explained your issue clearly, then please wait for additional responses. For the record, my wife and I use the same acount on our single PC. Good luck in getting the response that your are looking for.

Hi. There's something very basic about "sharing" that I'm misunderstanding.

Does the term "sharing" mean sharing with other computers on the network?

If so, then how do you share folders with another user on the same computer? Here's an example: Each of my sons has a Standard user account on the same computer. So 'A' can't access 'B's files, and 'B' can't access 'A's files. They want to be able to share certain folders, like pictures and music.

They could simply copy folders they want to share to the Public user folder, but that's not a practical solution. How do users on the same computer share files and folders? Is it possible to put restrictions on sharing ('B' can view some of 'A's photos, but he can't edit them, etc.)? There's got to be an easier way than fiddling with access permissions, which often ends up with unintended consequences.

Thanks for your help.

We recently switched from Centennial aircard to Verizon aircard (USB760) for our laptop. We have two user accounts on our windows 7 pc. With Centennial we could switch between user accounts without closing sierra wireless manager but when I switch to another user now, a message comes up saying vzaccess manager running in another account and we cannot use the internet until we have shut it down in the account it is running in - which is a pain. I have tried right clicking vzaccess manager in all programs and it does not have a share option. I also went to properties under vzaccess manager and found a setting to share and set it up but it still will not share. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Can't share internet connection between user accounts

Internet connection sharing is typically something that's done between computers/devices, not users. It 'should' be that any available internet connection is always available to any user who logs onto the computer. However, since your network connection is being managed by the vzaccess manager, it's something of a different story entirely.

I would recommend contacting Verizon Technical Support and asking them to step you through the process of configuring your system to connect without using the vzaccess manager. Once they've done that, uninstall that program and all should be well.

i have win xp. how do i share pictures and documents from one pc to the other. i am networked with linksys. i already share a printer on both computers but i can't seem to figure sharing other stuff. i know it should be self explanatory in here somewhere but i'm missing it. thanks
 

A:share pictures, documents

Settings / Control Panel / Network, select Printer & File Sharing, and enable file as well as printer sharing on both computers. Then go to Explorer, and right click on the top level (usually C) drive folder, then select sharing. Set up a share name for each drive on each computer which you should then see in network neighbour hood.

I'm trying to use PsTools to remotely send messages to clients (using the 'msg' program) regarding the network (e.g. a server is going to reboot). When using it in command prompt, it works for some machines, but for others, it errors about not being able to use the admin$ share on the target computer. I tried accessing the share via Run..., but again, it failed. The targets are all Windows XP. How do I make sure the admin$ share is accessible by the domain controller?
 

A:admin$ share

Usually any share with a $ on it is a default admin share and is
limited to the local computers admin acount.
You probably need to change them to standard shares by unsharing
it and clicking apply,then share it again and apply.
That should change the share to one without the $ limitation.

Hello everyone

I dont know if this question is allowed, if not, do forgive me. Is it possible to get into a Win XP admin account without knowing the password?If so how?and is there any way to prevent it?( No, I'm not trying to ruin someone's puter, just that a relative of mine apparently had someone do it on her puter apparently and I'd like to know how he did it).The same puter has 2 admin accounts so how can one of the admins be deleted?By going into the safe mode and use the built in admin?The same for changing the admin's passy?Can we somehow disable that default built-in administrator account?*sorry for the big bunch of questions*
