Excel 2016 always open as read-only

When opening a workbook from WorkPoint using Excel 2016, it open as read-only with the following messeage:
We opened this workbook read-only from the server.

This is a design change from Excel 2013 which opened workbooks directly into edit mode by default by Microsoft. They have published a blog describing the change and reason why here: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/office_integration__sharepoint/2015/11/12/excel-2016-opens-sharepoint-workbooks-as-read-only/
