A personal/friendly tip: You must visit the Microsoft's help site whenever you are stuck up with a problem pertaining to their software. It really helps. The above is one such example of their help that I had noted down long ago when I was faced by a similar situation.

Whenever I open my microsoft word documents and try to edit it or even start a new document, it says the modification is not allowed because the selection is locked.


An evil virus has set an ACL (Access Control List) list entry prohibiting you from modifying your own documents - or changed the ownership of your documents to another account on the system.

If the computer upon which your documents reside is not yours, consult the system administrator, who may have reset file or directory permissions. If the PC is your personal box - virus/trojan horse/worm/rootkit/malware/spyware residual damage.

To repair ACL damage, use MSDOS command cacls. How:
1) login as "Administrator"
2. START>RUN> cacls
or bring up an MSDOS command prompt (from cmd.exe) and type in cacls /?

Anyway, the problem described above is a OS/System problem.
The only way I can think of that MSWord would prohibit modifying your own docs is that
you recently upgraded MSWord to Office2010, and your docs were created with an old, incompatible version of MSWord - but doesn't Microsoft have backward compatibility for
older .DOC files?

Microsoft Word


There are three possible causes to this problem:
  1. The document is marked as final.
  2. The document is protected.
  3. You are using a trial of Office 2007.

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.

Modification is not allowed because the selection is locked


If using 2007, go to the Review Tab of the Ribbon if the Restrict Editing & Formatting Task Pane isn't displayed.
Then click the Protect Document icon (right end of the Ribbon) & choose Restrict Editing & Formatting.
At the bottom of the pane click the Stop Protection button - if there is no password require you will be allowed to revise the document.
If prompted for a password & you don't know what it is you can't make changes anywhere the Find Next Region... And Show All Regions... Buttons highlight for you

By the way, your Office is activated?

Can't get to my pc.


Without more information, you aren't going to get any help. This sounds like a common protected document problem in Office, not an operating system problem. Do a Google search with the phrase "this modification is not allowed because the selection is locked" and INCLUDE THE QUOTES. Otherwise: Operating system and version? Application version? More details about when the message appears?
