opening up word document read-only

Our company stores Microsoft Office files (word, excel) in EPDM.  When using the system, I can preview word files using the preview pane in the viewer.  However, when I double-click the file and it opens, EPDM automatically checks out the file.  If I dont make changes to the file, I really dont need to check the file back into the system, so I normally just close the file, right click on the file and select "Undo check out"

 

Can I change a setting such that when a user opens a word document (or perhaps other documents) EPDM does not automatically check-out the file and just opens the file in read-only mode.
