Microsoft Word 2016 Errors
Microsoft Word does not open word files
If Microsoft Word 2016 does not open word files, the reason is that the new program thinks that all older Word files are dangerous and need to be "protected."
In fact, it is just that Word 2016 will not open older Word files unless you turn off the "protected" mode.
To turn this off in Word 2016, pull down the menu on the left and find Protected View. Click on that and then uncheck all the enable boxes (so that these features are disabled).
This should solve the problem.
