... this command has a rather complex set of options. They can be displayed by entering "icacls /?" in a command prompt.

... eg. command to grant full access rights to an account named user:

icacls file_name /grant user:F

... more click HERE

...(Icacls.exe supersedes the "cacls" command of Windows XP. The older command is still available)
