I need to change 'Value' in an SSIS variable, How can I do this?

I have an SSIS package open in VS 2013.  I am in the process of migrating from server to server.  I need to change the current machine settings. How can I do this and what would be the correct syntax used?

>I need to change 'Value' in an SSIS variable
If we're talking how to change it in the designer, then click anywhere in the control flow, then View menu > Other Menus > Variables, find the variable name you wish to change in the Name column, and type a new value in the Value column.

If we're talking about how that variable is called when the package is executed (i.e. 'Machine Settings'), you'll have to provide more details as to what this is.

I get to this point:
find the variable name you wish to change in the Name column
but it doesn't allow me to change the value.  I click on the Value column but it does not let me change it.

<Potentially stupid answers>
If the SSIS package is running, you'll have to stop execution.
Is this SSIS under a source control application such as TFS?  Might be an issue with the package needing to be checked out.
Make sure the file isn't read-only (often happens with TFS).

Another possibility (no clue, just guessing here) is that if you've opened VS 2013, then opened an project in an earlier version such as 2008, the project might be read-only unless it is converted up.
