Editing Restrictions for Other Users

Post by Qwertyportne »

I sent a DOC file to a friend but she was unable to edit it because the file was set to restrict editing by other users. So I brought up the Properties for my file but couldn't find anyway to remove the restriction. Sure would appreciate help on this. Thanks!

Check the following.

Open whatever file manager you currently use (e.g., Windows Explorer).
Find your file.
Right-click on it.
Click Properties.
Look to see whether "Read Only" is checked. If it is checked, remove the check.

Maybe that will solve the problem.
