Hello Forum, Can I have permanent write/move/delete rights in my Applications folder and all its files and folders and sub-folders without having to log in as root? Right now I don't when being logged in (as admin user). Some files and folders can be renamed or moved or deleted, others not - and this applies not only to Apple applications but can also be so for folders and sub-folders that I myself created. It also happens that I give 777 rights to a certain (non-Apple) folder only to find the rights again restricted some time later. One example: I want to be able to move iTunes from Applications to a folder within Applications on my choice. I want to have my applications organized according to my linkings and needs - and iTunes works perfectly fine when moved to a different folder. And if this would ever create a problem I would be absolutely willing to take all responsibility for it. Is there a way to give me (as admin user) permanent unrestricted rights over the Applications folder and all it's content? Like it was in the good old days? Greetings - desertman PS: I would be grateful if this thread would not turn into a discussion about Apple's good intentions and the need to protect me from myself. I don't want and don't need this kind of protection. Thanks.
