First, don't worry about helping others, if you need help, ask, we will try to help you. If you learn enough to where you want to try and help or offer your suggestions go for it. What your asking may be helping someone who has the same question. Even if its a duplicate post, oh well, it happens (probably get pointed to dupe thread then close original thread).

To change permissions try this:
pkexec chown your_user_name:your_user_name /path/to/file/you/need/permissions/on

pkexec chown shawn:shawn /home/shawn/Downloads/Oct17_Pictures.zip
