The directions are wrong if you are trying to change something. You want
Permissions not Effective Permissions (this diagnoses permissions).
If you are adding a user or want to see what your permissions are (after
inheritance and multiple group membership is taken into account) in the
dialog hit advanced, then find, then you can select any user or group, hit
ok and it will insert the name.
Most Microsoft employees cannot use a mouse (do you think Help or Search is
usuable with a mouse - it's not). This is why it such a long winded
procedure as they think everyone just types program code all day so wants to
type user name, domains, and group names.
