Hi Guys--
I have a Word document. I apparently clicked something inadvertently and changed it to a "Read Only" Doc.
Annoying and mysterious. Can you tell me how to undo this nonsense, please?
Thanks a mil.

Right-click on that .doc file and then click Properties.

Uncheck "Read only" and then click Apply - OK.

Okay, did what you said--"properties" It's already unchecked, and "apply" is greyed out.
A small widow has appeared telling me it's locked for editing by owner, and to click to notify to open read only copy...etc, etc.. So I'm lost.

Background time. Work or personal, and where did you get it from? A lot of company docs will go out like that, but it also isn't impossible to set this locally.

thanks,

Empty the temporary folder and the office one if there is one. There is a temporary version of it lying around that Word thinks you are working on would be my guess.

Thank you all, guys. This thing suddenly solved itself. Remains one of the great mysteries of life, I guess.
Computers, god love 'em, are just too emotional.
