I have been using a utility as above but it quits working maybe because of recent W10 update to 20H4. Anyone know a utility which works on W10 v.20H4?

You can just use Explorer's context menu / Security, no? It sucks, but workable if not used often.

Or, don't know if this works on Win10, but try:

For commandline there's the stock takeown.
