How to make Win 10 allow me to save a Word document I created into a folder I created in the documents folder.

I know this is a common problem, but I can't seem to find the solution anywhere. I feel like I have no control over my own computer. Microsoft has apparently decided we're not smart enough to decide for ourselves when we want to save things to our computers, so they've taken the job over.

I created a folder in my documents folder. I then tried to save a Word document that I created into it, but I am being told I don't have permission to do that.

I am the only user of this computer, there is only my account, and I am the administrator.

Just to see if it would help, I set the user account controls to never warn me when any changes are made to my computer. It didn't help.

How can I get control of my computer back? How can I get 'permission' to save to my own documents to my own computer?
