Turn off Word 2003 opening in Read Only by clicking on .doc



I want to open .doc documents in Word by double clicking on the file in
Windows Explorer, but they always open in Read Only. I am currently running
XP Home Edition 5.1 SP 2 with MS Word 2003 SP 2.

In XP the file properties are NOT set to Read Only nor is the file type
(.doc) association configured to open as Read Only.

If I open Word first then open the file, it is in edit mode. As well, the
security options in Word for the document(s) do NOT have Read Only
recommended checked off.

What have I missed?



Thanks Abs, but nope, still opens documents in Read Only.

Funny thing is, this only happens when I double click to open. If I use
Open With, no problemo.
