Why am I unable to change the filter query on boards?

Under Manage Boards my team has a board set up that was created by the "Owner".  Occasionally I am tasked with adding to the Filter being used.  I am listed as "Administrator" in the system as well as in this board(added by Owner) but I am not able to save the change to the filter like the Owner is able to.  I am only give a "Save as" option.  How do I gain the capability to change the board filter without creating a whole new board?

Only the 'owner' can update a filter. You, as an admin, can change the ownership to you as described at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Managing+Shared+Filters and then modify it.
