D2L: Editing Properties in Place


Sometimes it is necessary to change the properties of a previously created file. When the properties of a file can be edited directly, the Edit Properties In-Place command appears in the context menu for that file. Additional information on Edit Properties-in-Place can be found at the Desire2Learn Online Resource Center. Following these links will direct you away from the UW-Platteville Knowledgebase website:
