File permission error in Microsoft Word 2013.


 Hi Margarete!

 For the short-term solution you will have to rename the file every time you save it. Simply, rename or add only one word at the end or add a number.

 These issues are related to the Word being set to run as Administrator user. You can resolve the problem saving a Word document due to file permission error by unchecking all the options in the Compatibility tab. You can easily find out how with the following steps:

– Navigate the path to C: / Program Files/ Microsoft Office15/ ClientX86 or Client X64/ Root/ Office15

– Right click on Winword.exe and the go to Properties

– Click on Compatibility tab and uncheck all the options shown. Click OK.

It should look like this:

– Try now to save the document and see if there is any changes in a positive way.
