Excell All sheets are Protected even new. How can I create a new sheet that is unprotected?

Occasional Visitor

I do not recall protecting excel sheet on my personal at home laptop. When I go into old sheets they are all now protected. 

When I create a new sheet it is also protected.

  How do I change this feature.

Hi @FaithKB 


do you use Microsoft 365/Office 365? If so, maybe your subscription is expired?


If I may recommend you, attach a file (without sensitive data) or a photo,

inform about the Excel version, operating system and storage medium.

This way you can get a solution proposal much faster.

How the worksheets were locked is not clear to me from afar with the previous information.
How you could unlock the worksheets I am sending you two links with information about it.

Hope I could help you with these information / links.
