Maybe you have a trial version of Office 2007, and the trial period has ended. Or maybe you have not activated your Office software.

What happens if you start Word 2007 and click on Office Button | Word Options | Resources | Activate? If you are already activated, a dialog box saying so will appear. If you are not activated, the Activation Wizard will start. If you have an expired trial version, a dialog box will prompt you to enter a valid product key or convert (purchase a key) online.

If you are sure, that it is not the case try following:

1. Go the office bottom at the top left corner of the window
2. In that drop down menu, click the "word option" button at the right end.
3. In that resources is the only option you can go with, so click the option and in that
sub-options click the "activate microsoft office" click "activate" button.
4. This option validates your word working duration, click finish.
5. close if any office is opened and re-start it again. You will see it would have activated.

When I try to type something in microsoft word, it says the modification is not allowed because the selection is locked and I cant type anything.


If this only happens in one particular document, try opening that document and clicking on Tools | Unprotect Document.

If all new and existing documents are locked for editing, then it's probably because you have not activated your Word/Office software, or because you have an expired trial version of Office. What happens if you start Word and click on Help | Activate Product? If you are already activated, a dialog box saying so will appear. If you are not activated, the Activation Wizard will start. If you have an expired trial version, a dialog box will prompt you to enter a valid product key or purchase a key online.

Please let me know if this has been helpful or if there is anything else I can do. Thank you.

My Keyboard won't type on Word program.


It seems like your trying to type into a locked document, which means that your keyboard is working, its not the issue, the issue is the spesific file which is locked, try another document / file or turn off the lock from office settings if you can find it.

3. Click on "Protect Document"
4. On the Restrict Formatting and Editing Task Pane on the right side of your screen, Click on "Stop Protection" on the bottom of the task pane
