I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Unknown to me until just the other day, my documents are in read-only mode. I can edit one, create one, and print one, but I can't save any of them. An error pops up saying I don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission! I am the administrator. I researched this problem on line, and I think I inadvertently followed instructions found to solve this with Outlook. I don't even have Outlook. Nonetheless, I followed the instructions and the doc problem is solved. BUT, I lost access to Microsoft Edge. I can't get online with Edge. I didn't care for it anyway, so I'm using Chrome now. Should I reverse what I did, assuming there is another solution to fix the Word problem?

Can you try to reset back to before you ran the outlook fix, but after the upgrade?

I'm sure I can. It was just one simple box it said to check. I will try but is there another solution to the Word problem before I do that?

Here is the site I found that I followed the instructions from. You scroll down and it's the last suggestion...<REMOVED BY MODERATOR>

Yea, don't do that. You do not need to do that in order to "fix" anything. All you have done is circumvent the security.

Just restore back to before the fix.

Is your copy of word a valid MS Product?

yes, it is a valid MS product. Since I lost cortana, the assistant for Edge, I don't see where to find "C:\Users in order to change back. I only have Chrome now. Suggestions?
