Afternoon everyone,

Version : 10.0.19043
Caption : Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

I've removed the incorrect certificate on some files and I'm trying to add the correct certificate
I've attached the sequence Im following - why I'm getting the error message "To add users to this file you must have access to the file and Write or Modify permission for it"

Many Thanks

Hey, and welcome to the forum.
I have no idea what you are doing this is something I should learn about but I have not done so but these links may help.
this one is a link to ms
or this one.
Oh and by the way Whatever files those are right click on them and select properties then go to security tab and you should be able to change the permissions. Good luck!
