Subject Re: For Information: Reported Windows 10 problems

Thanks for your update. So, for me it doesn't look like a general 
problem. We should pay some attention to the problem of the "read-only" 
files.

Next interesting question would to know what happens when the read-only 
attribute is removed. Can the OpenOffice files be opened like before? 
And is the startup of OpenOffice different/better?
