This is driving me crazy. Whenever I try to remove 'read only' status from a file or folder, basically NOTHING HAPPENS. I click apply and it acts like it worked. But once I look at the properties for that same folder it's still READ ONLY. I need to edit metadata on multiple files for class, which I was able to do as of last week. Also, under properties --> Details ... there is no 'Description' property on any of my word/excel/powerpoint files in order for me to edit tags etc. This has been only happening recently. What happened to my computer?
