Read only copy when opening Word file from network share

Trying to open a Word or Excel file off the network share we kept getting a message saying the file was locked for editing by another user and it asked if you'd like to open a read only copy.  Here's the fix:

Change Word (or Excel) options (File -> Options -> Trust Center -> Trust Center Settings -> Protected View options).  De-select "Enable Protected View for Files Originating from the Internet".
