Hi tommybourne, 

 

It might be that you've set up an AdWords Express campaign, which would explain why you can't edit the campaign from within the main AdWords account itself. In order to edit this kind of campaign you would need to log into the AdWords Express account directly, via this link, and edit your category there. You cannot edit your keywords directly for an AdWords Express campaign, you can only edit the catergories. 

 

If this is not the issue and you do not have an AdWords Express account, I would recommend trying to clear your cache and cookies and trying out a new web browser, to see if this will help resolve the problem. 

 

Hope this helps.
