Win 8 + permissions = aggravation

Discussions, problem solving, and tips and trick for operating systems go here. Windows, Mac, and Linux are ok. If you want to fight or put down an OS go to The Hundred Year War Forum. It will not be tolerated here. Make sure to post what OS is being discussed in the title of your post.

Right click on CMD and run as administrator
cd till I get C:\Users\Susan\Desktop

C:\Users\Susan\Desktop>move xxxxxx C:\ProgramData\AOL\C_AOL Desktop 9.7\organize

Keep getting "Syntax Error"

What next?

You needed to put quotes around the path. It can't handle spaces.
Code: Select all
move xxxxxx "C:\ProgramData\AOL\C_AOL Desktop 9.7\organize"

As a side note, hit Tab to autocomplete naming. Example: C:\Progr and hitting Tab should autofill the rest of it to C:\ProgramData. And by the time you get to 'organize' it would auto fill the quotes too.

I don't understand why I had no permission issues with the new account, but it worked.

Thanks for all the suggestions

Good you got it to work anyways.
