While searching for some information in some old files, I noticed that every time I open a Word document, using Word 2007, the "date modified" shown in Windows Explorer automatically updates and changes the file properties to reflect the current date and time. I make no changes to the file and at no time am I asked to Save the document, which would justify the update of the Date Modified field.
This happens in both Vista and XP.
Is there any way I can change this setting? I only want the date modified to change when I actually make a modification to the document.
