how can i save a .txt file in C:\? I keep on getting a permission box preventing me from doing so.
The short answer is that you shouldn't save files to C:. This is the root of the Windows system partition and is thus under UAC. If you really must (and you really shouldn't) then you can
Right-click on **C:** Select **Properties** Select *Security** tab Click **Edit**
in the Permissions for C: window
Select **Users(computer\Users)** Select **Modify** and **Write** under the **Allow** column Click **Apply**
UAC will ask for authorization
