Windows 10: Having trouble removing read only flag

    Having trouble removing read only flag

    I go to the file browser and look at the properties. It says that the read only is set. I turn the flag off and then hit the apply. I tell it to change all files folders and subfloders to this setting. It then tells me it needs to be in admin mode to it. I tell it to set admin mode and it then runs through all the files, etc. When I then look at the folder again the read only flag is still set. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong. The folder is in the Program files x-86 area.

    If this is for a folder then forget it. The read only flag has no effect there. More info here:
