How to Turn Off Reading View for Word 365 Attachments

Posted on

Whenever we open a Word Attachment from Outlook, it always opens in Read Mode. This mode means in Word that the Document is only for reading. The reason why it defaults to Reading Mode is because the Document is opened in Read-Only Mode. Outlook saves a copy of the Attachment in a temporary folder, because it is an E-Mail Attachment and always asks us before when we open Word with ReadOnly rights. If we do not use Read Mode in Word, and we always switch to Layout Mode immediately, there is a setting that we can use in order to avoid all this. All you need to do is to continue reading this post below.

We must select the File tab in order to move to Backstage View. Once in Backstage View, from the left, we select the command Options located at the bottom as shown in the image below.

Once the Options command is selected, the Word Options dialog box appears as shown below. From the left of the Word Options dialog box, we make sure that the General area is activated. Then we scroll down in the middle of the window, where we locate the area named Start Up Options.

General tab - Startup Options

Under the Start Up Options we have the following commands available:

  • Choose the Extensions you Want Word to Open by Default (by selecting this command we can select which extensions we want Microsoft Word to Open by default, without asking us each time
  • Tell Me if Microsoft Word isn’t the Default Program for Viewing and Editing Documents (by selecting this command our default application for Documents will be Microsoft Word)

  • Open E-Mail Attachments and Other Uneditable Files in Reading View (By selecting this command we can open E-Mail Attachments and other uneditable files in Reading View, meaning that Documents that we can’t edit such as attachments are opened in Reading View. If we deactivate this command, these Documents will open in the Default View).
  • Show The Start Screen When This Applications Starts (by selecting this command, the Start Screen will appear each time we open the application

All we need to do is to activate or deactivate the check boxes at the left of the commands in order for them to take place or not. Once we have done the settings needed, we just press the Ok button located at the bottom right corner of the Microsoft Word Options dialog box, in order to return to our Document.
