Protected Mode is an enhanced security feature which protects the computer from viruses. By default it opens the documents which are downloaded from the internet in such a way that editing is disabled. This allows users to see the preview of the document.

Protected Mode can be turned off (not recommended) by selecting Trust Center from the Options menu on the File Tab.
