When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Do you have admin rights for the PC?

If so you could start Excel with Admin rights.

if not, why do the files need to be in this directory?

Also note that from July 2016 Excel 2016 (and Excel 365) use different default directories.
