Every time I save a MS Office presentation I get a screen

Customer Question

Every time I save a MS Office presentation I get a screen that indicates it is a read-only file and must save it with a different name. I do not want to do that every time.

Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

I am very sorry about your issues. Are you using Windows Vista, 7, 8, or 10?

What version of MS Office PowerPoint are you using: 2003, 2007, 2010, or 2013?

Lastly, is this happening with a particular file only? Or in ALL of your old and new presentation files?
Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,
