I use the
gksu nemo (because my file explorer is nemo) command, yet when I go to the drive I use, I right-click, then go to properties I still cannot change the Permissions.
I have a 1TB portable hard drive, I partitioned it as 3 drives, one is like 100GB and it is ext4 for the OS, and the other is like 770 something GB and NTFS partition and I use that as main storage so I can access it on a Windows if I need to. The third is for Ubuntu and is only 100GB but I don't need to be able to write off that. I can write to it just fine, but Steam says I need to mount it with executable permissions so even though it says I do, I can't use Steam with it. I seem to not be able to execute files in general from it. I have to copy the files to the main OS partition in order to run them.
Am I doing something wrong?

Donnie's Drive is the one I am trying to be able to mount and use steam.
The Ubuntu drive is just an empty 100GB partition on the drive I am going to use to install Ubuntu to.
Thanks everyone for your help. Once you told me it was an issue with the mount I looked into how to fix the NTFS partition mount in linux, I found an extension to install through the software manager and ran it, then I could tell the system to give read and write permissions to the drive. So thank you guys for all your help, I have fix the problem.
