Thanks to hubby for sapphire and for setting up a wireless connection at home, I can work in any part of our house/room. Sapphire has been a great help for my mobility at home. I can work while putting Ayex to sleep, which happens most of the time I work at home.
Initially, I didn’t want to put Vista on sapphire because I heard a lot of negative feedback about it. But hubby won so sapphire has Vista.
Recently, I worked at home several times. Unlike here at the office where all the URLs I need to do my daily work are already bookmarked, at home, I have to rely on my browser’s history. So if I have or want to check an office URL that I haven’t visited so far, I have to guess it or ask the link from my colleagues. Then I remembered to start building my favorites/bookmarks list. Unfortunately, after trying to bookmark a page, I got an access denied error. At that time, I was already tired and didn’t want to research my issue anymore. I shut down sapphire and whine to my hubby. Hahahaha! Things I have to go through with Vista!
Last Sunday, I was online at hoe again. I remembered this problem. I went to Google and searched for my issue. I really think that searching is a skill. You get exactly what you need if you know what questions to ask. With one try, I found the answer to what I need. Below is what I did so I can finally bookmark the URLs I need.
- Open the command prompt with Administrator access.
I only know how to open the default command prompt in Vista so I had to do another search in Google so I can do step 1. I found that pressing Ctrl + Shift + Enter after typing cmd in the Vista Start Run box instead of just hitting Enter does the trick. It worked perfectly for me because I like shortcuts. Thanks to Mr. Byte for the tip.
- In the command line, I pasted this command: icacls X:pathtoFavorites /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low but did not hit Enter yet.
I have to change the X:pathto with the exact values. I checked my directories to see where my Favorites folder is located. Then in the command prompt, I modified the path to the correct one. After that, I hit Enter.
Vista processed my request and returned to the default C:Windowssystems32> after a while. Thanks to Microsoft forum for this command. It pays to read forum posts!
- I opened a link from my browser’s history, tried to bookmark it and it worked! I was able to create a new folder inside my Favorites folder where I can save all my bookmarks. Hooray!!!
If you’re having the same problem, I hope this can help you. This is definitely easier to do than the export-import solution others suggested in the forum. Happy bookmarking!
