    Desktop background photos are stored in this hidden folder C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT\MCT-US\Wallpaper

    There are other folders in C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT that I want to use as well but not allowed to change properties.

    I copied them into the MCT-US folder on 1 computer but would rather just change properties on my other computers.

    depends what you mean by the word "use". If you just want to use them but not alter them, there's no need to change the file's properties. "Read only" just means you can't modify it.
