This file cannot be previewed because of an error with the following previewer: Microsoft Word Previewer Outlook 2016

Trying to preview word attachments in Outlook 2016 and getting the following error message?

“This file cannot be previewed because of an error with the following previewer: Microsoft Word previewer ”

 

I was too and here’s how I fixed it for me.

1. Open word and click on File.

2. Click Options from the menu

3. Click Trust Center then Trust Center Settings.

4. Untick ‘Enable Protected View for Outlook attachments’

5. Log out and log back in (This wont work until you do this!)

  2. Thanks but didn’t work for me.
    Microsoft post also directed me to delete a registry key that doesn’t exist on my computer…

  3. Thanks, but following a Microsoft ‘upgrade’, I only have 8 options in Trust Centre Settings (you show 11), and none of them is Protected View. Everything worked fine before this so-called ‘upgrade’!
