Default locked folders

how do i get into locked folders in w7? back in XP i think it just gave me a warning but then let me "see files anyway".

not only can i not do that here, but no sort of right click "open as administrator" option seems available either.

properties>>security (and maybe >>advanced beneath that) offer me a bunch of "access" options. do i just go ahead and change those?

this is my own PC and i am the sole user. can i just open them up wide to "read, list, edit, delete, yadda yadda"?

what's the point of HAVING locks then if s/o can just change them at will?

btw, where is the "import favourites" option in IE9? not only can i not figure out how to import my FF bookmarks, i can't even figure out how to import the big pile of IE bookmarks i have (in a folder) from my old PC. (in part why i want to get into locked folders -- i figure i could drag n drop by hand directly to the Faves folder)

Default Re: locked folders


Will save me typing it all, but try this:

To import Bookmarks etc open IE9 with the Menu bar showing, click File -> Import Export and procede from there.
