That is really customizable in /etc/fstab
In most cases Linux sets index "ro" - readonly for windows partitions by default, which can be replaced to "rw" - readwrite

I would make it custom
/dev/sda5 /Myfolder vfat uid=username,gid=root,rw 1 1
In username input your username, of course. And "vfat" option only if your windows partition is FAT32.

You do realize that you have to remount or reboot after changing fstab, right?

I don't understand?? You set Windows partitions as what exactly? As EXT3?? or FAT32 or ntfs?

I think you guys are missing his point entirely.

He can see his linux folders from windows, but can't make any changes to them, they're read-only. This is why he keeps saying "in windows."

Please forgive me if I'm wrong, but I think his question has just been read incorrectly.

I think it's clear now that he has some M$ partitions.
Keep in mind that NTFS systems under linux are read only and being in development
