Hello,

You should be able to RIGHT click on the file, then LEFT click on PROPERTIES (at bottom of menu). Then uncheck READ ONLY located under ATTRIBUTES. Click OK.

This should do it.

I hope it help

Best of luck!!

First open Windows Explorer (NOT Internet Explorer) by clicking on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Windows Explorer.

Next, (assuming that your file is on your C: hard drive) click on My Computer and then on drive C.

Expand the tree until you locate your file. Right click on the file and click on properties.
Remove the checkmark from the Read Only box. Save and exit.

If you do not know where your file is on your hard drive, you will have to use Search (Start, Search) to find your file.

If you have opened a file from an email, tried to save it and have gotten a message saying that the document is read only, I believe the solution is to save it as a different title. From the description it is hard to know for sure what the best solution would be, so if this doesn't work post a comment with more specifics and I will do my best to help further.

Remove read only files


After copying a batch of files to your Windows PC from a CD or DVD, you may discover that all the copied files carry the read-only flag. The most obvious way to remove the read-only flag from a file is to right-click on its icon, choose "Properties", and uncheck the "Read-only" box. But what if you have hundreds, or even thousands of files marked read-only?
You can batch-remove the read-only flag from multiple files using the attrib command from a command prompt. The Windows Command Line site has a tutorial on commands everyone can use, which includes an explanation of performing this task with the attrib command. The section on the attrib command is titled "Changing file attributes with 'attrib'", and is located about three quarters of the way down the page.
In short, you can remove the read-only flag from a group of files by navigating to their folder from a command prompt and typing attrib -r ./*.* /s. I did this to a folder full of image files with attrib -r ./*.jpg /s.
Bring up a command prompt in Windows XP by clicking Start → Run, typing "cmd", and pressing "OK". In Windows Vista, click Start, type "cmd", and press the Enter key.

Have files on a CD that are read only. How can I remove read only so I can make changes to the files. Thank you.


You can use the xcopy command to remove the read-only attribute while you are copying files from a CD-ROM. Xcopy.exe resets the read-only attributes unless you specify otherwise by using the /k switch (this switch copies attributes). To use this method:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
  3. Type xcopy drive letter:\*.* destination /e /h, where drive letter is the CD-ROM drive letter and destination is the path to the destination for the files, and then press ENTER. For more information about command-line switches for Xcopy.exe, type xcopy /? at a command prompt.

I created an Excel program and somehow hit something that caused it to become a "read only" file that I cannot change nor add to. How did it happen, and how do I remove the "read only"...


Here are the steps on how you can make it a read/write file:


  1. Make sure that the file is not open in Excel.
  2. On the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
  3. In the Exploring window, open the drive or folder that contains the file.
  4. Click the file name.
  5. On the File menu, click Properties.
  6. Click the General tab.
  7. Clear the Read-only check box.

Hope this helps!
