Turn off Protected View when Open Outlook Email Attachments

 DJH Training & Application Solutions Inc.

Microsoft Office programs add a level of protection by turning on Protected View when email attachments are opened.

While this can be a plus, many of our clients find it frustrating.

Here's how to turn off Protected View:

  1. Open the Office program, such as Word, Excel, etc.
  2. Click File tab > Options > Trust Center
  3. Click Protected View
  4. Uncheck the appropriate Protected View options
  5. Click OK
  6. Voila!

    Note: This removes a level of security, so care must be taken when opening attachments.
