    Word 2007 Can No-Longer open .DOCM files after upgrade to Windows 10


    Today, I upgraded a Windows 8 system to Windows 10 Home. All seemed to work well.
    NOW however, Word 2007 cannot open a .DOCM file that has an embedded Excel spreadsheet object (.XLS).
    I've never seen such a thing before and I'm lost.
    There's a bunch of chatter about Security and Permissions for HomeGroupUser$ but I've not succeeded in getting the logged-in user (who is a member of Administrators but not HomeUsers) to open such a file.

    Does anyone have a definite fix for this issue?
    It apparently started with the "upgrade" to Windows 10.
    I considering upgrading to Windows 10 Pro but I wonder if that's going to help materially.

    Thanks in advance...

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    2007 Word program document since updating Windows 10 most file documents open as read only. Is there a way to remove the read only security restriction on my files? Sorry but I am not computer wise and require a step by step process to correct this. Really
