I accidentally pressed my laptop's touch pad for quite long and later pressed escape key for quite long and got my document locked, I am not able to edit or save it now. I have a dell laptop which has a lock feature on escape key. I don't know how to unlock it now.Can anyone help.

The keys that you accidently pressed probably would not have locked the document.

Here is a "how to" regarding the locking process:

That said, have your tried "CTRL", "ALT" and "DEL" buttons all pressed at the same time. May prompt you to log in again with your user name and password.

Thank you for your solution but my problem was neither my mouse pad nor keys were working on that ms word doc. I tried ctrl alt del repeatedly and also task mgr,tried closing the extra windows and some how got thru.

Thank you for help though :)
