by default, Word will open such documents in Protected View. However, by going to File>Options>Trust Center>Trust Center Settings>Protected View, you can change that behaviour for each of the above individual cases.
If the documents have the Read-only attribute set, you can go to File>Options>General and uncheck the box for "Open e-mail attachments and other uneditable files in reading view".
