    I was able to use Word fine. But now for some reason it requests a sign-in before I can continue.
    How do I disable the sign-in for Word. I downloaded a Word file but cannot edit it as it is Read-Only. I tried to save it then open it... but it is still in Read-Only state.
    I cannot even just open the file I was working on yesterday!

    @Javelin74: From the description of Microsoft Word on the Play Store.
    The last update to Word was on 3/23/2017. However, I believe the Microsoft account requirement existed prior to that. The Microsoft account is mandatory to be able to use Word as more than a .docx reader. Therefore, the solution to your dilemma is to create a Microsoft account. As to why it stopped working now when it was working before, taking a WAG the apps have a trial mode, where you can use the features for free for X number of days before they revert to their reduced functionality modes.
