    Modify Multiple files' NTFS permission

    In Windows XP, I can select Multiple files and right click them to modify
    permissions in Security Tab. But in Vista, I can't see the tab when I select
    multiple files and see the Properties. How can I do it like XP?

    Hello,

    I'm not aware of any way to do this exactly like Windows XP.

    You can do so using the icacls command-line tool when using an elevated
    command prompt.

    To open an elevated command prompt:

    - Click start
    - Type: cmd
    - Right-click cmd when it shows up under programs
    - Click Run As Administrator

    The icacls tool takes a bit of getting used to. Here's an example command
    line:

    icalcs *.txt /grant JimmyF)

    Grants the user Jimmy full control over all text files in the current
    directory.
