When I opened up the Excel file in OneDrive, It'll show the message "Read-only To prevent accidental changes, the author has set this file to open as read-only"

 

Could you please tell me, How to close it.


Thank You

You can close the notification by clicking on the x icon located to the extreme right of the yellow notification band. Or by clicking on edit anyway if you wish to dismiss the notification and proceed in edit mode.
