Changing umask setting for all users

In order to have the umask setting change for all users at login the umask setting in /etc/profile needs to be changed.

1. Use text editor to edit /etc/profile. *Note: You need root access to edit this file.

sudo nano -w /etc/profile

2. Edit the umask line located at the end of the file. *Note: This example is setting the umask to allow the owner and group have read/write while others have no permissions.

umask 007

3. Type in Crtl-XY, and hit the Enter key to save and exit.
