When I am trying to access one of my folders and trying to save a document in one of my folders, I get the error message "You don't currently have permission to access this folder". These are my folders that I have created. Why does it do this and how to I get access to my own folder?

I posted this in 2020 and did not get an answer. I still have the problem. Can someone please let me know how to get rid of this problem and access my folders and files?

Could depend on the root folder of your own folder, where did you create your folder. Also, it could be your anti-malware, maybe it's a little too nosey.
If there are other problem I usually use this tool LINK added to my context menu to regain ownership of defective folder; or do it manually like this LINK.

As Rollis13 said - What is the path of the folder? If it is in 'My Documents' then you should be able to access it and save to it.
Another thing to try is to 'Take Ownership' of the folder. See Just a moment...
