If you let users or coworkers review, edit and modify your works such as Word 2010 documents etc. then it might be a nice idea to be able to select and choose who and what people are able to modify and change in your files. This result is achieved by locking certain parts of your documents in Word 2010. In this way you will be sure that your most important sections will be left untouched by others. Let’s see how to do this thanks to a simple trick!
- Open Word 2010 and click the Review tab.
- Now, click the Restrict Editing icon.
- A side bar will appear on the right side of the Word 2010 window. Under the Editing Restriction section, tick the check Allow only this type of editing in the document checkbox. Right under this checkbox, you should be able to see a small drop-down menu. Select the No changes (Read only) option.
- Now, highlight the section/part of your work you wish other user to modify/edit.
- Go back to the right-side sidebar and under the Exceptions section, tick the Everyone checkbox.
- Provide the user names in the field and click the OK button.
- Repeat the steps above if you have other part you want other users to modify.
- When you are done, click the Yes, Start Enforcing Protection button on the left sidebar.
- Right after that, a pop-up window will appear on your screen asking you to set a password for the locked section of your Word 2010 document.
