Options for XP Home Permissions Manager
XP Home Permissions Manager
Permissions Manager is a Windows shell extension for extended control over files and folders permissions. This t is quite different than generic Windows security dialog. It allows creating predefined sets of access control entries (presets) and applying these presets to file system objects. With Permissions Manager user does not need to pick up security principals from the list to assign security settings for a file or folder. It is enough to compose a preset only once and then apply it with a single click.

Normally XP Home does not have permissions editor (like Windows XP Pro), so user have to use console tool cacls.exe. Permissions Manager supplies generic security control dialog (as an option) also.

Another feature is Security Zone management, which is especially useful when you work with files downloaded from the Internet. Permissions Manager allows you to set or remove the Security Zone for several files at once, or do it for all files in folder, recursively.

Permissions Manager is displayed as "Easy Security" tab in file properties.
