    Possible to add a file attribute for only one computer?


    My question is the title, is this possible?

    Let's say I have a .txt file that I want to add a file attribute only for my guidance, for example the number of lines or a clue of which is inside, but that file I will transfer it to another people and I don't want them to know that information. Is this possible to add a file attribute only for the computer which it was created (or for specific computers)?

    Thank you

    :)

  2. Change file attribute to 'unhide'

    Hello Walt,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the attribute of any file/folder to unhide.

    Step A: Show Hidden files

    1. Open Windows Explorer(win logo key+E) or My computer.

    2. Now click on View on top of the window.
    3. Untick ‘Hidden items’ in the options.

    Step B: Change file attribute

    1. Once the hidden file is located, right click on the file/folder you want to change the attribute for.

    2. Go to ‘properties’, untick the box facing hidden.

    3. Now, Click on ‘apply’ and then ‘ok’.

    Hope it helps.

    Thank You.

    File Attributes automaticly change in Windows 10

    We appreciate updating us. It is also possible that the file attributes automatically changing is because of the application itself every time the file is accessed and the application has full control of it.

    In the meantime, you can try removing the full control of the file by following these steps:

    • Right-click the file then Properties.
    • Select Security tab and click Edit button.
    • Choose checkbox Deny, click Apply then OK and check if the issue still persists.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    file saving with Windows 10

    Hi Robert,

    It is possible that the files on the separate hard drive is set as Read-only. We suggest that you see the steps below to check the file properties:

    • Right-click on the file, then click on Properties.
    • Under Attributes: section, see if the Ready-only has a check mark, if yes uncheck it.
    • Click on Apply, then OK.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
