    Question editing multiple folder permissions

    Hi
    I have built a vista client to see how it handles on our network for admins.
    Everything seems fine so far but MS have decided to disable the ability to hightlight multiple folders and edit their permissions. The "security" tab just is not there so you must edit each folder individually.
    Anyone got a work around?

    Cheers

    Use XP :-)

    I'm guessing they want you to edit at the level above. eg say you have
    Code:
    Topfolder
      Folder1
      Folder2
      Folder3
    and you want to change Folder1 and Folder3 but leave Folder2 alone. Move things like this:

    Code:
    TopFolder
      Sub1
        Folder1
        Folder3
      Folder2
    and set the permissions on Sub1

    Only other thing is to use the command prompt.

    Can't see any reason why that should be removed from Explorer - perhaps just another example of why Vista makes your life a misery!
