Windows 7: Default folders read only

27 Aug 2010   #1

Default folders read only

I reset all my default file folders and found them in read only as I did it. Is that normal?

I also found Dr Web instead of Saved Games in the name menu start up. .

Ever grateful

Hi Avie,

Yes, this is normal. Would you like assistance on making them not read only?

Thanks,

Folders don't have a read only attribute. Only files.
(Folders always have a solid block (not a check) in "Read-only" on properties)

Hi Avie,

When you say default folders, are you referring to system folders (e.g AppData) or folders such as My Pictures and My Documents?

Thanks,
