Disable Reading Mode and Protected View in Word 2013

I know it’s there for a reason, but I can’t stand the Reading View and the Protected mode in Word 2013.  I don’t like the layout of Reading View, and I feel I’m smart enough to open documents I know are safe :)

To disable the Reading View. Go to File – Options – General.  Uncheck “Open E-Mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view”

To disable Protected Mode. Go to File – Options – Trust Center – Trust Center Settings.  Select Protected View, then clear all the checkboxes.

There, free and clear to open and edit documents without Word telling me what to do! :)
