    1.) Let yourself get permission.
    2.) Maybe you're not supposed to save in the jdk folder.

    A good idea is to create a sepatate directory where you store all your projects. A classic name for that would be work. Not only do you always know where your own files are, it's also handy to keep them separate from the installed files in case you want to move to a second computer where you already installed your programming environment.
