Word giving “You are attempting to save a file type ” error.

The whole error is:

“You are attempting to save a file type (Word 2007 and later Documents and Templates) that has been blocked by your File Block setting in the Trust Center.”


Follow the instructions by clicking on File >> Options >> Trust Center  >> Trust Center Settings, and finally “File Block Settings in the left hand menu.

Uncheck all the rules blocking a Word document from opening.


I hope this helps someone else out there.
