When you receive an email (particularly in Outlook) with an attachment, if the the attached document is a word document, Excel spreadsheet or PowerPoint Presentation, you will often get a message about it being in protected view.

This is a security feature as attachments could contain viruses or other nasty things.

If you use a mouse you can click on a button on the bar underneath the Ribbon. However you can use a keystroke sequence instead.

The sequence is:

  • Alt + F, then I then E.

The full details if it helps to remember the sequence.

  • Alt + F (for file menu) then
  • I ( for info) then
  • E (for enable editing)
