    editing read only files ?

    Jim3987609

      I've been given the files of a website to update them. The site is written in Dreamweaver and was done by someone else who is no longer available. But the files are "read only" so will not save any changes I make to them.

      How do I change the files from read only please in order to be able to make changes to them ?

       

      Regards

          If you're trying to work from a CD-R, you need to copy the files to your hard drive.

          Once there, right click the folder. Choose Properties

          Under the General tab, uncheck Read Only.

          Click Apply and OK.

           

          This should change the access rights to the folde rand its contents, but if it doesn't, you may have to repeat these steps for each individual page.
