Hello Everyone,

I have found a way to unlock a folder/image/document etc. from 'Protected Folder' through a feature in Windows 11 (not sure if this also applies to Windows 10). If you right click the desktop to bring up the shortcut menu (click on 'show more options' in Win11) to expand the menu and right at the bottom of the menu click on 'File Ownership' and select 'Personal' which displays an unlocked lock and voila Bob's your uncle. The only drawback is if you have hundreds of images to unprotect because you can only select 8 to 10 files per task. If it's a protected folder then it will unporotect everything in that folder. The process is slow but well worth it and you can then re install the Protected Folder app anew.
