      Every time I open my resume in Word 365, the LinkedIn Resume Assistant pops up, asking if I want help with my resume. I don’t want any help, so I close the popup window.

      I got tired of the popup window, so I went to Options / General and unchecked the box by “Enable LinkedIn features in my Office Applications”. When I clicked OK, it told me, “The server drafts location you entered for offline editing is not valid or you do not have permission to access that location. Specify a location on your local computer.” When I clicked OK, it brought me to the screen where I could specify a location for server drafts. However, I can’t type anything in the file location! If I put the cursor in the field and type, nothing appears; and I can’t copy and paste a location in the field, because when I right-click, paste is grayed out.

      The only way I have found to overcome this is to run Word as administrator on my local PC. If I do that, I am able to uncheck the LinkedIn box, and I am not prompted to specify a location for server drafts. And the LinkedIn box stays unchecked. However, if I then run Word as a regular user, the LinkedIn box is once again checked.

      Anyone know a way that I can uncheck the LinkedIn box and not have to run Word as Administrator in order to do it?
