I have installed an ran godot for over a year on several machines win and linux, but today Wife tried to start tutorial on brandnew laptop win ver 11, downloaded Godot 3.4.2 installed it, ran as admin and as regular user. Will allow me to create folders, projects, add nodes- but it will not import assets. I have deleted and reinstalled twice and still unable to import any assets. Not via drag and drop or copying them directly into project folder either way Godot is not importing.

I suspected it was a permissions problem (folder set as read-only) so I manually set project data folder to read and write and then could import.

How do I change it so when projects are created they are created with correct permissions on Win 11?

Please help.

Likely an OS permissions issue as you say. Try moving all the files to a fresh folder and see if it fixes it.
