how to fix this huge mistake I ran sudo chown -R user /

im flag

How can I fix this issue? the user is not the root one and unfortunately one of the mounted disks that got affected too was the apps disk of my windows but I am not sure if it got affected as I can still run those apps and open stuff there is it possible to fix the linux now? or will I have to reinstall?

I ran

sudo chown -R non-root /
ru flag
Reinstalling your system is the fastest solution. (However, this exact question has been asked NUMEROUS times and this is a duplicate of those)

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
