How do you do that? I regularly exchange files with a writer friend of mine, and I can't scroll normally in Protected view. I hate it!

           You also have the option to turn Protected View off as the default in Trust Center settings.  I do this routinely since any file that I get, whether as an e-mail attachment or via download from the internet, is scanned by my antivirus before I ever have a chance to open it.  I also don't grab MS-Word files "at random" from the internet or open attachments from unknown sources so the risk is minimal to begin with.

I worry a lot. . . I worry that no matter how cynical you become it's never enough to keep up.
