Yes I ran into the allow and or deny pulldown menu and I was already on allow, but it made no difference. I switched it to deny and saved it, then switched it back to allow hoping to make a difference but again nothing. Like I said I am to old for the aggravation. Ms just doesn't want to let us control our machines. This has always been a problem and after long while of reading and making changes I could generally get around it and access my files but "ten" with all of its crazy stuff and my lack of patience has just about whipped me.
I do thank all of those who have given me help, but at this point I'm just going to drop the file folder on a USB stick and see if I can get at it one my wife's computer. If not I will just forget it. I stopped watching TV when they changed to digital because of poor quality and trouble getting signals. If after 60 plus years of nightly viewing I can shut it off and not look back, I'm hoping I can do that with computers as well. Not having a computer in my life would make life less congested because it seems the thing requires half of my day just taking care of mundane things...email, news and weather an occasional purchase and naturally the up to date political drama. I can probably go back to paper files if my writing hand doesn't give out and deny me a pencil or pen.
