(Image-2) Folder permissions for User on Windows-7!
The windows permissions for Folders include Full Control, Modify, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, and Write access. For information about these permissions, see File and Folder Permissions. Each of these permissions consists of a logical group of special permissions, which are listed and defined below. Not all of the special permissions will apply to all objects
Groups or users granted Full Control permission on a folder can delete any files in that folder regardless of the permissions protecting the file.
Although List Folder Contents and Read and Execute appear to have the same special permissions, these access permissions are inherited differently. List Folder Contents is inherited by folders but not files, and it should only appear when you view folder permissions. Read and Execute is inherited by both folders & files and is always present when you view folder or file permissions.
In (10, 8.1, 7) of Windows, the Everyone group does not include the Anonymous Logon group by default, so permissions applied to the Everyone group do not affect the Anonymous Logon group.
