  1. Opening files


    Since installing Windows 10 any files I receive in emails, and even downloaded templates from Microsoft site I cannot open. I have to save the files, go to Properties, and unblock. How do I change this?

    This only started to happen with Windows 10

    :)

    PowerPoint file crashes PowerPoint upon opening

    since this happens in some of the computers only, suggest that you open the file on working computer and copy everything and paste to a new powerpoint file.
    most of the time it works to me. *Smile Opening files :)
