    Are you logged in as an Administrator on this PC? I would unmark Read-Only in the properties. You may need to go into the Security tab and take ownership of the files and folder.

    See this tutorial Change Owner of File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 10 Windows 10 Security System Tutorials . But before following it, you may need to enable and then log in using the built-in Administrator account, so here's another tutorial for that, too: Enable or Disable Elevated Administrator account in Windows 10 Windows 10 User Accounts Tutorials
