Hi List

 

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.

 

Regards

Which is exactly what protected mode is supposed to do.  You have to unprotect the document before you can touch it.

If you're someone who only opens attachments from known sources they trust, you can consider following these instructions (MS-Word format) for, Adjusting Protected View Settings in MS-Office Programs.

Sometimes if you alt-tab away from the document and alt-tab back, you get results. another thing to try is f6. If you're lucky, that will take you to an edit button, and pressing that will free things up. Alt-f, then i, then e will also unprotect the document, but only if you can get alt-f to work.


good luck!

Ann,

Let me add to your mention of f6 that you then tab once. I can't remember the word you hear, but it's something like unprotect or clear or open. Press enter, and the file becomes unprotected. This method has worked consistently for me for some time.

Dean,

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.

Hi All

 

I have found the solution.

 

  1. Close all opened applications and then only open Microsoft Word
  2. Press Alt+F and then the letter T to bring up the Word Options dialog
  3. Press the letter T for Trust Center
  4. Tab to the Trust Center Settings... Button and press the spacebar
  5. Press the letter P for Protected View
  6. Tab 3 times to the option, Enable Protected View for Outlook attachments and press the spacebar to uncheck this option
  7. Press enter once and then press Escape
  8. Close Word and opne your email and try to access the attachment. If after pressing enter on the attachment, it places your focus on the Save button, press up arrow once to Open and then press enter
