I have a spreadsheet that I use. Now when I open it it says it is open in "read only". How can I change this?

Check the file's permissions on file system level, it needs to be writeable. You didn't specify your OS, but if you upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 there are some known quirks around user access rights and file permissions, search the interweb in that case.
