    I'm OLD and forgot how I did it

    I use to be able to remove the 'read only' attribute from any file, but
    haven't used it for so long I forgot how I did it.

    Isn't there a way to clear 'all' files of that attribute in one command?

    doing it one file at a time, just right click on any file and then click on "Properties" and uncheck the Read Only or Hidden or System file attribute at the bottom of the window.
    then apply the change and close the window.

    It's seldom necessary to remove the attributes for an entire folder. You would NOT want to do that for the entire drive.

    Good Luck!
