Using the Permissions pane

The Permissions pane in the Browse tab displays the permissions for the object selected in the Objects pane. You can modify permissions of the parent object. If the permissions are inherited and cannot be changed, the list is gray.

The Object box displays the object selected in the Objects pane.
The Owner box displays the owner account name and SID.

Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object

Select this option to propagate permissions to the selected object from the parent. If you select this check box, a warning box displays the selected object and its parent along with the parent’s permissions so you can decide whether or not to continue. Inherited permissions display in gray and cannot be changed.

If you clear the Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object check box, a warning box displays the choices you have for preventing propagation of permissions from the parent.

Show Permissions

Select to display permissions (default) for a selected object. Clear the check box to prevent the display of permissions in all windows and dialog boxes. This setting reverts to the default each time you open Security Explorer®.

Show Cluster File Shares

Share Security module only. Select to view cluster file shares when browsing a computer that is a member of a cluster. Cluster file shares display in bold. If selected when the computer is not a member of a cluster, a message displays.

NOTE: If the Auto-detect computers that are members of a cluster check box is selected on Tools | Options | Advanced tab, the check box is selected automatically for computers that are members of a cluster. For computers not members of a cluster, the Show Cluster File Shares check box is disabled even if the Auto-detect computers that are members of a cluster check box is selected. See Setting advanced options.

Customizing the view

Security Explorer® has many interface elements that you can show or hide to customize your experience. The most common operations performed in Security Explorer can be accessed through the tool bar on the Browse tab. Other interface options include the Tasks tab and the Control Buttons bar. You can show or hide interface elements on the View menu.

You can size the panes by dragging the vertical and horizontal split bars. The size of the panes and the selections on the View menu are saved by default. When you start Security Explorer the next time, the display returns as you left it. To restore the display to the factory default, select View | Reset View to Defaults, or select Tools | Options, and clear the Reload window state (size and view menu entries) check box.

Topics:

Choosing an interface mode

There are three interface modes that you can select from on the View menu: Standard Mode, Classic Mode, and Basic Mode.

To reset the options to the default, select View | Reset View to Defaults.
