Editor is read-only VSCODE when trying to edit

Describe your question in as much detail as possible:
So I am new in GitLab, setted my project from Github, imported everything just fine, the problem is when I try to edit the actual code

  • What are you seeing, and how does it differ from what you expect to see?
Editor is read-only because the file system of the file is read-only
  • Consider including screenshots, error messages, and/or other helpful visuals

    Here is my access token generated and added to VSCode

  • What version are you on (Hint: /help) ? and are you using self-managed or gitlab.com?
    Latest? Just using the website and VSCODE with gitlab workflow extention

  • What troubleshooting steps have you already taken? Can you link to any docs or other resources so we know where you have been?
    I’ve been looking at any tutorial on how to set up VSCODE and be able to work remotely from there but I was not able to find anything but the workflow extention.

I suppose you have used GitHub Codespaces before for Remote Development?
GitLab has similar feature Gitpod | GitLab, which is using https://www.gitpod.io. I wouldn’t say it’s exactly the same, but it might suite you.

Of course the easiest solution is to just git clone your repository and use it the pure GIT way.
