If the dollar has a higher value compared to the currency you're exchanging
it for, then the transaction fee may be insignificant. However, you'll
definitely FILL THE PINCH if the dollar value is much lower as is sometimes
the case with the British Pound Sterling!

Evan, in your post, the following statement appears:

"Paypal MAKES MONEY from CURRENCY CONVERSION." Not sure I know what else
you need to know that the COST OF FOREIGN EXCHANGE CONVERSION was added to
the transaction fee you paid Paypal. At least Paypal is reasonably
transparent within the law on that score. Just ask Paypal directly and
you'll be surprisingly shocked. Paypal won't EXCHANGE THE FUNDS for you if
it won't make a cent on the transaction. In some cases, those conversion
fees ARE NOT EVEN REFUNDABLE should you cancel your transaction. Even if
you send the funds as FRIENDS & FAMILY, a currency exchange fee will still
apply on such international transactions.

Sincerely,
Olusegun

"I've never been

Sorry sir, international business transactions DO NOT WORK as you indicated.
The recipient of any funds transferred across borders IS NOT THE INITIATOR
of the transaction; therefore, all transaction charges, including foreign
currency exchange fees, will never be borne by the transferee. Ask any
bank--U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, Chase, and CapitalOne. These entities MOVE A
HECK OF A LOT when it comes to international business transactions. Credit
unions don't do nearly as much at least here in the United States but not so
in Britain where they are commonly referred to as cooperatives!

Re: Access Denied, How To Access

Mike B
 

Hi Jaffar,
 
I finally did get the tweak I needed from the Winaero website.  It's URL and explanation is below.  But first, thank you very much for all these tweaks you've provided, keepers for sure!
 
 
Add Take Ownership Context Menu in Windows 10
Sometimes you need to get full access to some file or folder in Windows 10. It can be a system file or folder, or one which was created by a user account that no longer exists. In most cases, the Windows operating system will prevent you from doing any operation on such files and folders. By adding a special context menu, you can quickly get full access to the files and folders.
 
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
 
Take Ownerhship Context Menu
 
NTFS is the standard file system of the Windows NT operating system family. Starting with Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6, it supported the concept of permissions which can be configured to permit or restrict access to files, folders, and other objects locally and over a network.
 
By default, almost all system files, system folders and even Registry keys in Windows 10 are owned by a special built-in user account called "TrustedInstaller". Other user accounts are set to only read the files.
 
As a user accesses each file, folder, registry key, printer, or an Active Directory object, the system checks its permissions. It supports inheritance for an object, e.g. files can inherit permissions from their parent folder. Also every object has an Owner which is the user account that can set ownership and change permissions.
 
If you are interested in managing NTFS permissions, refer to the following article:
 
How to take ownership and get full access to files and folders in Windows 10
 
To save your time, you can add the 'Take Ownership' context menu. This will allow you to become the owner of the files and to instantly grant full access permissions to the files or folders.
 
Before proceeding, ensure that your user account has administrative privileges. Now, follow the instructions below.
 
Download the following ZIP archive: Download ZIP archive.
Extract its contents to any folder. You can place the files directly to the Desktop.
Unblock the files.
Double click on the Add_Take_Ownership_context_menu.reg file to merge it.
To remove the entry from the context menu, use the provided file Remove_Take_Ownership_context_menu.reg.
You are done!
 
How it works
The context menu opens a new PowerShell instance as Administrator, and sequentially executes the following commands.
 
takeown /f  - the command will change ownership for the selected object to the current user account. For directories, it will be executed with the arguments /r /d y. /r stand for recursive in order to process subfolders. The /d y argument is the default answer used when the current user does not have the "list folder" permission on a directory.
 
icacls /grant *S-1-3-4:F - the command gives the full access permissions to the current owner of the file system object (which is set to your current user account with the previous command). SID: S-1-3-4 is a well-known security identifier that represents the current owner of the object. When an ACE that carries this SID is applied to an object, the system ignores the implicit READ_CONTROL and WRITE_DAC permissions for the object owner.
 
That's it.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Re: sending the full amount of money through pay pal

Evan Reese
 

I am doubtful that it's an appreciable difference for small transactions such as the kind I gave a receipt for below, hardly worth the trouble.
Besides, as I said, 0.91 Euro may be the currency rate now. Back on August 13, it could very well have been what my receipt says it was, 0.8613 Euro. It's not that much different from 0.91 Euro. It could have gone a lot higher and lower in the past few weeks just by daily currency exchange fluctuations.

I just checked, and one dollar is 0.91 euro. This is why it is probably
better to use a curency exchange service, as the exchange rates from

I would know if I had been charged. I read those email receipts from PayPal, and I save all of them. I also check my bank account regularly to keep track of what has gone out and what has come in. There has never been a transaction charge, and there has never been a currency conversion charge in the case when I pay in Euros or some other foreign currency. Foreign currency in this case means Non-U.S. currency.

Hmmm, what you say may very well be true, but it raises another question. If that were the case, why would they tell you that they're charging you a fee, as per your agreement, but not tell me that they're charging a fee as per my agreement?
They can always charge the business the fee, and not the consumer. Since they aren't telling me that they're charging me a fee, I'll bet that's what they're actually doing. Rules may be different for different countries.
And currency rates can change quite a bit from day to day.

The feature appears to only work on Pixel phones at the moment and was introduced sometime in July.

Troy, if you're NOT PAYING for GOODS AND SERVICES on Paypal, you're
essentially sending me money as a friend or family member. Make that choice
on Paypal and NO RED CENT shall be deducted from whatever you send to the
recipient.

One caveat before I run:  If you're sending money to someone outside the

the money being sent into the currency in use in the recipient's country.

They just charge the fee and add it. I bet the conversion rate is much  better. a dollar is alot more than  than  68 euro cents.

Re: Access Denied, How To Access

I'm not at all sure this has to do with the procedures you are describing.  I don't know.  The first thing I would do is try setting UAC to 0.  Then see what happens.  After working In these folders, set UAC to where it was before.

Are you sure the drive doesn't support 110-240 volts? Many appliances can use any voltage, like iphone chargers, where you only need one to change the plug prongs, with a cheap piece. If it doesn't, you can buy transformers, which can be used as long as you like.
