    Problems win 10 after a change in folder read settings

    Following instructions from a game manufacturer I changed the 'read only' settings for users / documents folder. Win 10 now disfunctions (instable, search unavailable, chrome closing incorrectly, etc). How should I proceed to restore the folder settings without restoring windows completely?

    Th most urgent problem is that the 'search' fuction (Windows 10 Pro) no longer works, no matter how I shake or dance. I still beleive it has something to do with a change in the permissions to the documents folder, but I am afraid to just start fiddling around.

Mail App - is there a way to mark a folder 'all read'?
Like it says in the title. If such functionality exists, I can't find it. Also, is there a way to check all the items in a folder for a bulk action? Seems like you have to check them one by one - ugh.
