update file in Windowsapps directory failing

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to set permission to windowsapp  directory so I can update nvngx_dlss.dll and still having problems.  I can at least read it now.  I followed this https://www.maketecheasier.com/access-windowsapps-folder-windows-10/  But during takeownership update, I can see permission denied fly by.  

When I try to rename existing file, it says "you'll need to provide administrator permission to rename this file".

When I right mouse on the folder, under advanced, I can see my local account owns  it.

I sign in to my computer with a yahoo.com email address.

In netplwiz, I can see my account is an admin.

I go into Advanced Effective Control and select my user and it  shows full control with all the various read / write / modified options.  It seems like the "users" permissions are preventing it (it is in Advanced Security as Read & Execute).  Should I try disabling inheritance and remove it?
