TextEdit

All of a sudden, when I tried to save a Textedit document to the desktop, I received the following message:
" The document “Untitled” could not be saved as “xx.rtf”. You don’t have permission.
To view or change permissions, select the item in the Finder and choose File > Get Info."
I cannot find "Get Info" under the TextEdit file icon.
iMac 10.8.4.
I tried BEAN with the same result. I can save in PAGES.
What can I do? Thanks.

Try using a new file name when you try to save.

Can you create a new folder on your desktop? Click the desktop then select the File menu (from the top left of screen), then "New Folder"

Renaming file .......

...... doesn't work either. Yes I can create a new folder, but that's not the problem. I can't save the file to any folder.

Go into Disk Utility and click on Repair Disk Permissions. Restart and see if that fixes it.

Command-I is the keyboard shortcut.
