Question: I am unable to edit a MS document I got emailed. I says all documents/sheets are locked. Why do they say ‘read-only’?’
If you open a Word file directly from a zip file, it will say ‘read-only’.
To resolve this, you have two options:
- Unzip the files to a folder on your PC and then open them. They will open as regular files or
- In Word, click File, Save As and then save the file with another name, e.g. Process2.
If you re-open it back in Word, it will no longer be read-only.
