I have done a search and cant find a reason why, when I want to save a file that I am working on, it says some files are read-only, save to a new file.

Its not always, sometimes it saves as normal windows .

I have put up with it til now, but sometimes you might make just one small change, and have to save it to  a new name each time.... ?
With my mobile phone I can call people and talk to them -  how smart can you get ?

This is only for sketches saved in the arduino IDE folders themselves (example folders etc) or other folders on your computer with read only permissions on files.

If you save your sketches to your desktop/sketchbook/documents then you should be fine.

Thanks,  thats what I will set up then.

It is about time I had a tidy up, every time theres a new Arduino version, I just copy all the libraries and examples into it and work from there.
