Windows 10 Permission To Edit Files In Program Files & Program Files (x86) Folders

Windows 10 isn’t letting me edit and save files in these 2 folders on the C:\ drive, for some reason. For example, if I open a simple .txt file, make some changes/edits, and then try to save it, I get error messages about not having permission. This is my own personal computer I use at my apartment, so it’s not a work computer. This whole permissions thing that came out since Windows 7 has always been confusing.

I’d like to make Windows 10 let me do what I want, cos it’s my own computer. None of the supposed solutions I find online work for my situation, either because there’s buttons greyed out, my screens look a little different, or I just get more error messages. So, does anyone know how I can give myself the permissions I need to open a file, make changes/edits, and then save it? No matter what I try, I always seem to run into some kind of a roadblock.

Here's a few screenshots of the issues I’m having. Thanks.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

It's the current version of Nitro 13. And I'm not sure what / where I go or what to do to take ownership.
