Re: Protected files

NO, you don’t want to do that since it is a security feature so you are less likely to get a virus if you open a document with a macro built in that could really mess things up.

If it is from a trusted source, once the document is open, press f6 and listen for Be Careful, documents from the web may be dangerous.  Then tab to enable editing and press enter.

You can now edit and save it in an unprotected format.

Hello, I’m using Jaws2018 and Windows10. For the last month I get emails with attachments. I open the files and they are always in a protected mode. Is there something I need to turn off in Outlook2016?
