Deleting permissions

NOTE: You cannot delete inherited permissions, which are indicated by Allow (I) in the Type column of the Permissions pane. Navigate up the directory tree to locate the parent, and continue with the delete process.
TIP: NTFS Security module only. If you want to delete both explicit and inherited permissions, use the Search module. See Deleting permissions by searching.
Click on the Tool Bar, click Delete on the Control Button Bar; or right-click the selected permission(s), and choose Delete Permission.
IMPORTANT: If permission(s) are not selected when you click on the Tool Bar or click Delete on the Control Button Bar, the currently selected object(s) (folders, files, registry keys, or services) are deleted.
