  2. Type regedit, and click OK to open the Registry.
  3. Browse to the following path: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTDirectoryshellcmd
  4. Right-click on the cmd folder (folder), and click Permissions.

  5. Click the Advanced button.

  6. On “Advanced Security Settings,” click the Change link next to “Owner”.

  7. Enter your account name in the field provided, click on Check Names to verify you’re entering the correct account name, and click OK.

  8. Check the Replace owner option on subcontainers and objects.
