    Assign all premission to other admin user?
    I am running Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

    user A and B both are admin of the computer.
    A has many applications installed.
    B is currently created.

    Problem: there are many applications that B cannot open even though I already assign "read and write" permission to B when A is log in.

    Main question: is there a way to assigned all the permission to B, so I don't need to assign every application one by one.

    reason: something on A profile is corrupted, so I created B, later on, I will delete A, but B must have all the permission to access everything before the deletion.

    Please Help, Thanks!

    Closer than you think.

    Use Disk Utility to repair the permissions. Permissions for the /Applications directory should not need to be changed, ever.
