Hello,

when I right click a folder and check permissions I find that
there is a System group with full permissions. What is this group and
can I add users to it ?

I encountered it when I am setting a GPO with the entry Always install
With Elevated Privileges which if I am not mistaken automatically
applies the System permissions to install required software when the
user does not have permission.

Thnak you

Hello aconti,

This group is created during installation of the OS and you can not add members
to it. This group has the highest privileges in the OS.

Best regards

Hi aconti,

The System group is a Special group that is used by the operating system.
Special groups are created automatically by the system. The group doesn't
exist in the sense that you can add anyone to it. There are quite a few
Special groups that are used by the system during specific system activities
based on their namesake. They include Everyone, Network Users, Self, Creator
Owner, just to name a few. You cannot alter them.
