I am having a problem saving my InDesign presentation onto my desktop. The file reads locked when I try to upload to Professor Maria's folder or if I try to go in from my desktop, I can not. I do not see it in the creative cloud or anywhere. How do I unlock when I save my files?
I guess I somehow locked this and am not clear how unlock?

If the file is still open it won't be able to be moved. As Indesign produces an Hidden lock file called an .idlk file (indesign locked) which prevents it being opened/moved by a user when it's already in use. Close your file and try again. If it still isn't working, try rebooting.
