Welcome to Permissions Reset, this simple FREE application was developed to solve one of the most annoying problems with Mac OS X computers, Permissions problems. So many times these security features have gotten in the way, problems can range from not being able to save work right through to applications misbehaving and/or crashing. Below we've listed the most common three uses of Permissions Reset, and how to use Permissions Reset to solve these problems.
This is a nasty little problem that can cause some applications to misbehave and crash (as they expect you to be able to read and write to your own Documents folder!). It can also be frustrating if you need to update a file in your documents folder and you simply cannot do anything to it, not even delete it.
Sometimes when sharing files with others, they ask you to make a change to a file and send it back. So you open it up, make your changes and then go to save. The application then tells you that it can't save, it might say why - then again it might not. So you end up saving it another file and then sending that one back! Those days are gone.
Sometimes these things happen whereby the wrong permissions get attached to not only a file, but whole applications! For example if an application isn't showing it's icon, or when you open it nothing happens, or even worse it just generates error after error. You can try it in Permissions Reset, no harm if it doesn't work.
