It should be visible from the location. E.g. Program files folder is r/o by default.

You may also issue:

SELECT 0
USE (SYS(2005)) AGAIN ALIAS WhatEver
BROWSE

and try to write into it.

You may also find the appropriate record and check the ReadOnly column.

And you may use:
BROWSE NAME oGrid_Aleris_Corp NOWAIT  PREFERENCE YourPrefName
which will create resource record just for your purpose.

What means "i organize my tables"? Do you shuffle tables displayed in a browse window on the screen? Or something else?

FoxPro remembers window position when you have RESOURCE file defined. So what is your SET RESOURCE setting at the beginning of the startup program?

The reason of your problems can be somewhere else.
Where do you type "close"?  CLOSE command causes an error exception and your error handler can be the reason. etc. etc.
