Default Need Help Re: Read-Only


I made a file a "read only" file that I now wish to delete. I cannot move or delete it from my drive now. Is there a way I can disable the "read only" so I can get rid of it?

Thanks

You ought to be able to delete it if it is a read only file. Are you sure it isn't something else?

To change a read only file, right click the file in Windows Explorer→Properties and uncheck the read only box
