So you know for next time what may have happened:

In Windows, if you open a file from File Explorer it will start a new instance of the application that is needed. So, if you double-click on a given SKP file, then later on do that again, you now have two copies of SketchUp open, each one trying to edit the SKP you double-clicked on. The second of the two copies of SketchUp will only get Read access to the file.

If that happens, close the second version, then point at the remaining SketchUp icon in the Task Bar, and look to see if the file is already open.
