Unfortunately, it's the whole PC, which is also the reason why I have to use this terrible webmailer, sorry.
And I don't see any edit button or anything else obvious. If I click on Properties of a file, I get three tabs:
General, Security, Summary. On the Security tab I see from top to bottom
a box labeled "Group or user names:",
underneath two buttons "Add..." "Remove"
then a box labeled "Permissions for <as selected in 'Group or user names' box> Allow Deny" with list of permissions
and an Advanced button.
At the very bottom OK/Cancel/Apply
If I then select "Advanced" I get a window with three tabs:
Permissions, Owner, Effective Permissons
The contents of the Owner tab is what I see in column #3 of ls -l
I can't find anything that corresponds to column #4 of ls -l
The Permission tab has buttons Add..., Edit..., Remove but those only open more or less complex windows to set permissions.
What am I missing? I appreciate your answers and sorry for this not entirely Cygwin related question.
