This problem is caused by Windows Fast Startup (hybrid boot or hybrid shutdown), which is enabled by default. When shutting down Windows, it hibernates, allowing it to boot faster. This is a good option on Windows, but many times it causes problems. In fact, when we shut down Windows in a normal way, it is not a perform a full shutdown but a hybrid shutdown, which keeps the partitions locked. And when we boot into Linux we get partition read-only.

Here are some solutions to this problem are as follows:

Perform a “full shutdown”

When Windows is completely shut down, it unmounts the partitions. To perform a full shutdown, press and hold the shift button while clicking Shutdown on the Start menu. You can also click “Restart” because Windows does a full shutdown itself if you “Restart” the PC.
