    I have a large Word document that was in Word 2003 with a .doc extension that I am changing to Word 2007.

    I made some changes to the document then "save as" a .docx file. What I failed to notice was it saved as "Read Only".

    I renamed the file and saved again, but it also saved as a "Read Only". It is late in the day and I do not know where I errored.

    I want to save the document in Word 2007, but not as "Read Only".

    Help.

    Close the document in Word.
    Launch Windows Explorer
    Select the file of interest
    Pull down File > Properties
    Select the General tab
    Clear the Read Only box in the Attributes section
    Regards
    Don

    Thank you Don.
    I will try your solution and let you know.

    "Windows Explorer" - who would have thought.
