    What are the default permissions for the Applications folder?

    Somehow, my folder's permissions get changed to rwx for all, which I obviously don't want.

    Fix your permissions via Disk Utility!!If some permissions are changed, disk utility will fix them!:)

    Unfortunately, a "Repair Permissions" doesn't seem to look at the Applications folder's permissions. It looks like I'll need to do it manually.

    It should be read and write for system and admin, and read only for everyone.
