Understanding Protected View
If you would like to explicitly open a file in Protected View, choose File
Open to display the
Open dialog box. Select your file and then click the arrow to the right of the Open button. One of
the options displayed is Open In Protected View.
You have some control over how Protected View works. To change the settings, choose File
Options and click Trust Center. Then click the Trust Center Settings button and click the
Protected View tab in the Trust Center dialog box. Figure 3-2 shows the options. By default, all
four options are checked.
