Hi,

I noticed that when selecting multiple files/folders the "Security" tab is missing (I'm logged as Administrator). I think this is very annoying specially when you frecuently edit several file permissions at once.

Anyone knows how to enable the "Security" tab?

Regards,

Mc

Looks like more people are having this problem in Windows 6.0: Microsoft Technet Forums - Vista feature regression: "security tab" missing for multiple selections in Explorer properties.

I did some disassembling but couldn't find out how to hack it to allow multiple files to be changed at once.

Guess you 'll have to use the cacls command in cmd.exe which is explained at Win2008workstation.com - Take Ownership/Permissions.

Good luck!

Arris

Sorry for bumping old thread but there is this open source software called FilePermsBox (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/winsdk/accessctrl4.aspx) that installs its own "FilePermsBox" tab which is a clone of the Windows Security tab. See this image: http://img98.imageshack.us/img98/1723/filepermsbox.png. It works for multiple files as well. Only problem is with Vista/7, MS changed some shell interfaces so the shell extension doesn't work with Vista/7. If anyone can update the shell extension interfaces it uses for Vista/7, then we would get back the GUI for setting permissions on multiple items.
