How to Fix File Permissions Problems

About once a year, we work with someone who’s Windows computer won’t let Bloom access its own files. We don’t know what causes that, but here’s how to fix it:

  1. Locate your Bloom folder. Normally this folder is Documents/Bloom.
  2. Right click on the folder and choose “Properties”.
  3. Click on the “Security” tab.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Type everyone.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Next to “Full Control”, tick the box next in the “Allow” column.
  9. Click OK.
  10. Click OK.
