Excel 2010: How to disable "Enable Editing" button from coming out when opening a file?


Unlike Excel 2007, in Excel 2010 whenever I open a file from an e-mail or output from another business system, the "Enable Editing" button always pop up.


I need to click it before I can edit the file.


I feel that this is very distracting and slow down my work,  what more  Excel and Window 7 have all the security features to protect the data.


May I know if I can disable this process?
