  1. Open the relevant application, (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.).
  2. Navigate to File > Options.
  3. Within the Options window, on the sidebar click Trust Center and then click Trust Center Settings.
  4. Within the Trust Center Settings window, on the sidebar click Protected View and then deselect the following two check boxes:
    • Enable Protected View for files originating from the Internet
    • Enable Protected View for files located in potentially unsafe locations
  5. Click OK to close the pop-up windows.
