I have two discs which contain files which was downloaded from my previous desk top computer. I now want to view and edit some of these files on my new desk top. But when I open the files it says they are "Read Only" What should I do so that I can edit the files and possibly add other words? My old computer had Windows XP as the OS. The new one has Windows Vista Home premium. Any help much appreciated
If you right-click on a file - select Properties. On the General tab remove the tick from the "Read-only" box - click Apply and OK. You will then need to save the file again to your new computer, as they won't change on the disk.
