Hello In Win 8 I want to get admin priv so I can see the contents of the imaging folders that say 'empty' when you hover but actually contain information. In Goggling, I found 8 ways but all seemed to be quite complicated. Do you have any easy suggestions once I am at the image icon to obtain administrative privileges.? Thank you Peter

The 0only way I know how to do this is to fully disable UAC, see here: Disabling User Account Control in Windows 8

Thanks for that; I did notice when you click through continue, it does eventually open. This was the case with the Win 8 imaging icons in Computer.
