The steps below will prevent Word, Excel, and PowerPoint from opening attachments in “protected” view. You only have to do these steps once for each program. If you don’t care much about spreadsheets or slides, then you can just do the steps below for Microsoft Word.
Microsoft Word Procedure
That’s all there is to it for Microsoft Word. If you don’t need to worry about spreadsheets or PowerPoint slides that are emailed to you as attachments, you can ignore the rest of this.
Microsoft Excel Procedure
That’s it for Excel.
That’s it for Excel.

I would be very interested in knowing how to set it up so documents do not open in protected view.

There is a marked difference between PDF documents as opposed to Word or Excel files. With regard to the latter two types of files, you can unprotect these files after they are opened in protected view. There is a way to set Word and Excel up so that these files do not open in protected view. If you want those details, let us know.
As for PDF files, you can set security up in Adobe Acrobat so that Protected View is not used. However, to be realistic, I can’t recommend a specific solution unless I can get a sample of one of those protected documents—something which your employer would not allow.
I am using the latest version of JFW annual with Windows 11.
My job protects all documents, so every time I open a Word, PDF, Powerpoint, Excel file, protection is enabled.
There is somewhere on the screen to disable all features.
I need to do this, in particular, with PDF files.
If I can’t disable protection in order to convert my file from PDF to Word, can I use Jaw’s OCR feature to read the document?
If so, how do I do this?
On my previous job, Jaws would automatically ask me if I wanted this to be done.
Or will it not OCR the document, since the PDF is most likely accessible, once I enable all features?
