The problem is that I want to be able to change the permissions of this folder, so that I can change the items in the folder without typing a password. I want to know why I am locked out from being able to change permissions on this folder. It acts like I should be able to add a different user, but it just doesn't stick. Why am I not allowed to change permission on this folder if I have an administrator password? I should be able to do whatever I want. And I want to know how to change permissions on this folder and make them stick. I have fixed permissions. Can you change the permissions on your folder, and add your user to it? I have even re-installed today and it is still not possible
And I don't find the Library a minor annoyance. At the least there should be a way to make it normally visible instead of having to go to the folder.
Updated to Lion today, and had a surprise with the Utilities folder, as it is now set as an Admin folder. I went to change the Permissions to add myself as a user so I can do anything without typing in a password. Well the weird thing is that I can hit the plus key, and select myself, but when I hit it, nothing happens. The permissions do not change! What is going on?
This is an annoyance, much like hiding the users Library folder.
