    Issues with read-only file and folder

    Hi Folks,

    I'm confronted with an annoying issue.
    I took over the Laptop from my wife (with Windows 10 family x64 installed). I reset it and I have the "read-only" issue ever since then.
    When I unchecking it, It comes back always and always...

    Help me, please ! ^_^

    I did the "net user administrator /active:yes" 's command but same issue with it.


    Thanks.

    Not enough information. What folder? Is it all folders? Is it just one file in one folder? Are you the owner of these files and folders?

    See this.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the lack of information.

    It's all folder like : desktop, my documents, my music, my pictures, program files, windows, windows.old, etc.

    But, the thing is I can creat files into those folders... (which aren't in read-only state)

    Very strange...

    regards,
    GensoD.

    Edit : I have already done the steps that your link offers.

    Re: Issues with read-only file and folder

    After further research, I am not sure what you are trying to do is easily done - Windows/Microsoft really has no way of knowing you are a good guy and are not trying to take over a stolen computer. I might suggest you create a new admin account user - essentially starting over for you, then delete the old account.

    Perhaps someone more experienced with Windows user accounts than me will stop by and offer something better.

    Screenshots (of the error and of user accounts in Control Panel\User Accounts\User Accounts\Manage Accounts) are welcome.
