When downloading some D2L Content (usually Microsoft Office documents) with Internet Explorer, the security settings don’t allow the document to be edited properly.

The solution is to use a different browser, such as FireFox, Safari or Chrome,  *OR*, choose ‘Save’ (rather than ‘Open’) and save the file.  When it’s opened, the ‘enable editing’ feature will work properly.
