Locked files and Mac OS X
Authored by: elephantmanmusic on May 16, '10 05:51:12PM

The easiest way to do it is to open the folder that all of the locked folders are in. Select the folder. Single click the folder and type command I (as in the letter "I"). At the bottom right of the info screen click the lock. Type in your administrator password which will unlock the permissions. Change the folder from "Read only" to "Read & Write". Now for the cool part. At the very bottom just to the right of the zoom icon, click once and a drop down menu opens. Select "apply to enclosed items" and every folder and program within that folder will be unlocked. You can do the same thing for batch locking programs.
