Hello,

Running word 2007 on windows vista....after I wrote my docs and saved them to the desktop, I am no longer able to go back and open them up due to an error message of "user does not have access privileges" even though i just wrote them!!! what's going on????

My guess is that you have not login your computer as administrator.

Anyway you should not saved them to the desktop as the desktop is usually used for shortcuts.

1. Try open as administrator (click right)

2. See if you can transfer them to "My Documents". (Click right and send to)

3. Login as administrator

Good luck

Regards

I only save them to the desktop because I am using them to cut and paste with additional docs and then sending them and its faster that way...there is no open as administrator option when right clicking on them

What is your operating system?

What are the files' properties? (Click right and left on properties)
