How to remove read-only attribute?

This question was answered on March 7, 2005. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

This behavior occurs because the folder is customized The files that are associated with that specific folder inherited the attributes from that folder That is why both the files and folders have the same read-only attribute.

To fix this problem, you can:

1 Right click on the first folder

2 Scroll down to Properties> Click on it

3 Look all the way to the end of the dialog box, you are going to see Attributes:

a Uncheck the box right next to read-only

b You will then be prompted you to apply changes to sub-folders and files or for that folder only > Click OK

c Click OK, on the properties dialog box

4 Repeat the steps for the other folders.
