    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.
