Almost like under Linux and MAC OS, you can simply change the file attributes on Windows via the command line!
The standard procedure is familiar to everyone, to view or change the attributes of a file, right-click the file, and then click Properties. In the "Attributes:" section, activated attributes are provided with checks. Add or remove the reviews to Read Only, Archive, or Hidden to enable or disable these options. If you want to change the system attribute, you have to do it at the command prompt!
To determine which attributes are enabled for a file, you need to use the attrib command at the command prompt. Enter the following in the directory in which the file is located:
attrib C: \Full-Path\File.txt
