    Access Denied error while adding Favorites in IE 10 Windows 8

    I have been using Windows 7 since long year. Now i bought a brand new Dell laptop which came pre-loaded with Windows 8. As this is first time i'm working with Win 8, feels good to lean new things and new features of windows. But there are some problems also which are irritating me a lot. One of them is the one listed in the title above.

    I moved my IE Bookmarks from windows 7 to Windows 8 but while trying to add them in IE 10, i get an error message saying Access Denied. Why? I'm the only administrator of this laptop. If i dont have access, then who?

    Somebody please help.

    Were you using Internet Explorer 10 on Windows 7 also?

    Yes, these favorites have been exported from IE 10 browser itself and i'm trying to import them in the same version but on another computer and another operating system. I have all those favorites backup on my Flash Drive. What to do ?

    Although you are Admin, when you take favorite on your Hard drive or any flash drive, it actually becomes in Read Only attributes due to which when you try to import them anywhere else, you get access denied. You first need to change this attributes and then try to import. It will work definitely.

    if you dont know how to do the same, here it is:
    • As you said you want to import them on Windows 8, open Command Prompt as an administrator on Win 8 and run below commands one by one.
    • cd\
    • cd users\”your username”\
    • ATTRIB favorites –r


    Let me know the results. Hope it works.

    Just wanted to share my own experience with a very similar problem. I had such Access Denied problem couple of months and ago and this is what worked for me:

    Open Command Prompt as an Administrator.
    Type “CD %userprofile%” without quotes followed by Enter key
    Now type “icacls Favorites /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low” without quotes followed by Enter key

    That’s it. Now try adding favorites again. Hopefully you should not get that error anymore.
