Microsoft PowerPoint Read Only Mode

Asked By 15 points N/A Posted on -

Hi everyone! I was working on a Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation and I saved it. Later I opened it again to edit it but the problem is that I cannot edit this PowerPoint presentation. Apparently it has been opened in the read only mode making it impossible for me to make any sort of editing. If I try to uncheck the read only box by going in properties, a message is shown which shows that only the system administrator can change this setting. I mean I am the system administrator so why this message? Please Help! Thank You!

Microsoft PowerPoint Read Only Mode


Try any of the steps below:

  1. Open Windows Explorer and select Organize>Layout and uncheck the Details and Preview pan options.
  2. Select File>Options>Trust Center>Trust Center Settings.  Select File Block Settings and check the options.
  3. You might have saved the PowerPoint presentation as Final.  This will prevent any further changes to be made. Click on the Office button, choose Prepare, Mark as Final.  This should make it editable again
  4. I’m not sure if your presentation has links to Excel objects, but if it does, Start Excel and go to File>Options>Trust Center>Trust Center Settings>Protected View and remove the check in the Enable Data Execution Prevention Mode.
