Question: I work in a school and have made a number of MS Word resources of my own for my classes and my department. I would like to upload these to the school’s website but I wanted to have them as Readonly and uncopyable Word files where the content was uncopyable. I am currently running Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010. Is what I want achievable with the software I currently have or should I forget the idea?

Answer: There are two methods to make readonly and uncopyable word files.

use MS Word, please see below steps

    1. Create the document in Word or whatever.
    2. Use Print Screen to copy an image of the document.
