finding and unlocking folders

Guest

I'm a digital imaging student, with no computer skills. I down loaded adobe
creative suite2. All the icons are on my desk top, I'm supposed to start an
assignment but can't find a folder. I've tried searches but still coming up
with nothing. But when I leave the classroom on a cd in the hard drive those
lessons show up. My teacher said it should not be read disk only, it should
be in the hard drive. Can somebody help me with clear step by step
instructions? Please and thank you!

I presume that some lessons and assignments are on the CD. Copy the
folders/files from the CD to your hard drive and then change the attributes
on the files by un-checking the Read Only attribute.

Oh really. So just how did you create or edit those digital images
without using a computer?

You have no business taking that digital imaging course. It has
prerequisites, one of which is basic computer skills. So take the
classes in the order the school told you take them which means taking
Computer 101 before taking Digital Imaging 302.

Wow, you really don't know computers. "Leave a classroom on a cd".
That must be some big CD with a hover kit so you can use it to fly out
of the classroom. "on a CD in the hard drive". Can't make up your mind
as to where on what media you saved your project files?
My teacher said it should not be read disk only, it should
be in the hard drive.
Probably not what the instructor said at all. The CD recordable is only
recordable by using CD burning software (built into the OS or included
with the CD-R drive). Without that software, the OS can only read from
the CD and why anything there is read-only. It is read-only media and
why you can only read from it and not edit there (because that would
require writing or recording). If the file is on the hard drive then it
can be edited - unless you copied it from CD (read-only) to the hard
drive which means the copy of the file on the hard drive will have the
read-only attribute on it.

Did you even have a CD in a drive when you saved your imaging project?

It would take a long time to teach you the most basic computer skills
before you could be helped with your neglect to remember where you saved
the files. Wait until after class or get there early to ask your
teacher for more help. You need hands-on guidance. Ask your teacher
where are your files. If on a read-only CD and you need to copy them to
the hard drive to edit them some more, and if the teacher forgets to
inform you, remove the read-only attribute on the file that you copy to
the hard drive.

As to finding files, well, start with Start -> Help and Support and
search in find file. Windows has a file search you can use right under
the Start menu. Of course, you will have to know something of whatever
you named the file to which you saved your project. If you haven't a
clue what you called the file, you could search by timestamp to find
files that were modified about the time you saved your project.

Eh? An oxymoron if ever I heard one. How can you be a "digital
imaging"student with NO computer skills?
