Read Only

  highfield 09:51 06 Feb 2006

One of my most important files has suddenly become "Read Only" for no apparent reason. A friend said to right click on the file, select Properties, then check that the attributes are "Archive" and not "Read Only". The problem is that I cannot get "Properties". I get a box saying that I cannot get "Properties". No other tips as to how to remedy this.

I have XP Home. The file is a .doc.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Seems you can open it, why not copy the text and paste into a new one?
