I just got a new Dell laptop with XP SP2. I am trying to assign full
read/write/execute permissions to a file. There are sharing and
security options, but none that give the ability to change read/ write,
etc. I know that such permissions were once there, especially on
Windows NT and 2000. Now there is no security tab on the file. Can I get
back to the normal security tab which allowed me to change permissions?
It should not matter if it is a Word document, picture, etc. In my case
it will be a .php file. Please do not flame or spam me.
Thanks,

On XP Home you have to logon in safe mode to have the Security tab present;
as you boot up the computer press a few times the F8 key at the first logo
screen.

On XP Professional the Security tab is brought into view in: Control
Panel\Folder Options\View\uncheck; Use simple file sharing (recommended).

XP PRO: In Windows Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View and uncheck Use Simple File Sharing. Now, when you right click on a drive, folder or file (on an NTFS partition) and select Properties, you'll see a Security tab. Here you can assign or deny permissions based on user name or user group membership.

XP Home: By default, you can only make files and folders under My Documents "private". This is done by right clicking a folder or file and selecting Properties, Sharing. To change the permissions on other folders, you need to boot the computer to Safe Mode and log in on the built in Administrator account. In this mode, you'll see the Security tab in Properties, and you can assign permissions based on user name or group membership.

How Do I Get the Security Tab in Properties - XP Home (makes the Security tab appear outside of Safe Mode)
