Hi, Mario. No, you didn't offend me. I was looking for a more logical reason to use ALT F, followed by I,E, not just to put down what you said. Now that I understand that you get a warning if using Protected Mode, before you disable protection, it makes more sense. I am always open to learning new things. I was not dismissing your suggestion out of hand. I just didn't know the ultimate reasoning behind your preference.

so, those mechanisms are just there to annoy the user?
no, they are there for a reason. if a document has an infection, the
antivirus program will alert you that there is a possible infection
where you can take the appropriate action.
where as, if the mechanisms have been disabled, there's no opportunity
for the user to do anything because he/she thinks it's okay because the
AV didn't alert to anything suspicious.

as for your documents, you wouldn't have to press the alt f i e at all
because they are your documents, I should have specified in my previous
post, "whether from an online (internet) sorce, trusted or not."

I hope I haven't offended you because I find your replys on how to do
this or that rather direct to get the job done, thus helping those who ask.

If you press ALT, F, I, E to open a protected document, you have already
temporarily suspended protection of the document. So, if the document has an
infection, it will possibly invade the system after protection has been
suspended. This call doesn't make any sense. If I get documents, I want them
all available for editing. I don't want to have to perform the same
repetitive action on every document, every time I edit that same document. I
use Microsoft Word to make tips files, and sometimes I edit the same
document three or more times a day.

I'm sorry, but I can't stand when someone advises to disable protection
mechanisms in certain situations instead of pressing 4 keys to enable some
action that is a simple thing to do...

I think it is not wise to disable the protection check boxes because if a
document file happens to be infected that the antivirus/antimalware program
doesn't know about or detect/catch, the document automatically releases the
threat/infection because the protection has been disabled, and therefore
having to deal with a potential headache trying to get rid of an infection
that affects the entire system. it is I think, safer to "enable editing
when ever it is needed to open/edit such a document file whether it comes
from a trusted source or not.

just, press, alt, f, i and e.
if you can't bother to press the keystroke to enable editing, then the risk
is your call.

Hello Everyone,

How can I read and edit my mails in Outlook Office 365. Switching the
virtual cursor on and off is not doing the trick barrier-free for me
satisfactorily. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Best regards,

smart
