In this tutorial, we learn how to prevent edits or changed in documents in MS Word 2007. Start by going to the review tab, then click on protect documents. Then, click restrict formatting and adjust the different settings. Click on the check marks to choose what types of settings you want to restrict from being changed. This can make it impossible for anyone else to edit the pages except for the original author. You can also make an enforcing protection password so only the document creator can make changes to the document. After this, your documents will be better protected, so you have less of a chance of having your hard work ruined!
