Linux Commands for Beginners: 17 – Changing Permissions

Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

Welcome to my Linux Commands for Beginners tutorial series, where I’ll show you how to use the Linux Command shell (specifically Bash) one command at a time. This series aims to take you from a beginner to an advanced user, one video at a time.

In this tutorial, I go over changing permissions of files and folders.


  1. Hello, how to modify permissions for users who are in the same group, but they have different right to the file?
    User1 – full rights
    User2 only write premission
    User3 write and execute permission

    thank you in advance

  2. The one thing that annoys me to no end about Linux is that when I insert or format a USB drive root takes permission. Exude me but I payed for that USB drive not root. It is my property and I should be able to do with it as I see fit.

  3. excellent series 🙂
    really appreciate it. It was all said in a simple way, which was great for us beginners. Also definitly not too fast or too much in 1 vid, which i also liked
