How To Disable Protected View in Office 2010

Microsoft 2010 has enabled a new Security feature in Office 2010 knows as “Protected View”. Basically It enhances protection against risky Outlook email attachments, files that came from the Internet, files that fail validation or files that are located in potentially unsafe locations.

Let’s say your friend or Colleague from Work sent you a Word Document or Excel spreadsheet as an attachment in Outlook 2010 then by default when you double click the spreadsheet or word document it will only open as a read-only document inside Word & Excel, Even Powerpoint Presentations which are sent as attachments in Office 2010 will open in the same “Protected View” by default.

The major disadvantage of this “Protected View” in Office 2010 is that neither can you edit the document nor can we print them.

So How Do We Disable this Protected View in Office 2010 ? Read More
