    Prevent Accidental Deletion

    What's the easiest way to protect a file from accidental deletion? I'm looking for something similar to setting "Read-only" in Properties.

    Umm, never mind. Shortly after posting, I searched the Internet one more time, and I found instructions for either W7 or W8, and they were close enough. I forgot exactly what some of the things I clicked were called, but if anyone wants to know, I'll find the exact steps and post them.
