    Unable to 'save' any files to folders, resetting read-only doesn't wor

    since installing Windows 10, I can not save updates to word files or anything to a folder. I've read I should change the user settings that default to 'read-only' in the system folder. I've done this 3 times. The fix doesn't work. Help!

    Try creating a new local user account and see if that user has the same problem.
