I recently installed ubuntu on a new hard disk with several ext4 partitions and 1 fat32 partition for installing windows in the future.

I am able to view all partitions in File Manager. The partitions also get mounted when I click on them. However I am not able to create any files or folders in the ext4 partitions.

It is strange that I am able to create files or folders on the Fat32 partition. Why does Ubuntu make it so complicated?
