I have found the solution.

Are you sure the attachment is opening in a Microsoft office program outside your email client? To your point, if I have an attachment open and it’s in protected view, I can hit Insert T to read the title and it will announced that it’s in protected view, then use one of the methods like F6 to get to the bar where I can hit the enable editing button. The reason I ask is that there is an annoying setting in Outlook that will open attachments in “preview”, which is actually showing a preview of the attachment within Outlook and, in my recollection, that won’t read at all. It’s typically the first context menu option if you right click the attachment and, quite possibly, a default setting in Outlook. I recall having to make an adjustment in Outlook Options somewhere to disable the preview.

When I open an Attachment in Protected View I get no response from any key stroke/s I make. Alt-F etc does not respond at all.
