"Import" problem: you don't have permission to open this file

WIN 10 - AUDACITY V 3.0.2

Never had a WAV or Mp3 files “import” problem before.
Suddenly with v 3.0.2 I keep getting this error:
“you don’t have permission to open this file
Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission.”

I am the file owner and permission is granted through “File Properties>Security”
Very frustrating!!. :frowning:
Anybody else with that problem.
Please help!
