Help With Folder Permissions On Mods Folder

  • I have to reinstall my game due to some weird issues with the mods folder, but I need to delete the "mods" folder under the actual file in steam>steamapps>common>Grand Theft Auto V.
    It says I don't have permissions - how can I get permissions for it? I've tried a few things. I need to delete everything from it before I reinstall.
    Please help, any contribution is useful.

  • @ethannn_ you've already tried editing the security permissions right? Typically that would fix it. If all else fails, I recommend using FileMenu Tools by LopeSoft. It has a few force delete options that has helped me many times (even for a virus I've had in an old PC many years ago).

  • @stillhere i attempted going to File Properties>Security>Edit Permissions>Changed to USERS> and then Apply/Ok. and still no avail... It wouldn't delete the contents...

  • @TobsiCred no.... better try that. Didn't know that was a thing lol. :laughing:

  • @TobsiCred How do I do that? Not under the usual admin bit. Do I need it on desktop?

  • @TobsiCred Ok thanks. Yeah on Windows 10. How can I put it on my desktop? I can't find how to like normal things. :/

  • @TobsiCred No File Explorer so i can Run As Administrator. Also i'm confused about that^ I hit windows right click run, then cmd, on the black command prompt, then what do I do?

  • @TobsiCred Wow ok thanks :)

  • @TobsiCred Thanks :) Did you make that?

  • @TobsiCred When I type in the file location which is C:\Users\ethan\OneDrive\Documents\Steam\steamapps\common\Grand Theft Auto V/mods
    It says ="cannot find file specified"........ Damnit!
    My steam is in documents. I copied the file path like in the video.

  • @TobsiCred Ah it worked for some reason, not the cmd thing, but just deleting the folder after that!
