In Linux, all files have a specific owner.

The chown command is used to transfer ownership of a file to a specific user.

For example:

chown baransel random.txt

This will make baransel the owner of random.txt

You can use the ls -l command to confirm the ownership change.

This will give the following output:

-rw-r--r--   1 baransel  staff         0 May  9 14:48 random.txt
