Remove protection from MS Word
How to remove protection from a Word document if you forget your password
You can remove protection from a Word document that is protected, for example, from editing or printing, without any protection removal programs. So…
Open the document from which you want to remove protection. Save in html format
File—> Save As ... -> File Type: Web Page.
We open the web page with a text editor. We are looking for a string with the word password.
I opened Notepad using the program, pressed the key combination Ctrl + F. It is necessary to change the code between the tags <w: UnprotectPassword> ABCDEF01 </ w: UnprotectPassword> in MS Office Word 2003 or <w: documentProtection w: edit = "read-only" w: enforcement = "on" w: unprotectPassword = " D218CFF4 " /> in Microsoft Office Word 2007, those that I highlighted in bold are at 4 0, like this
MS Office Word 2003 <w: UnprotectPassword> 0000 </ w: UnprotectPassword>
Microsoft Office Word 2007 <w: documentProtection w: edit = "read-only" w: enforcement = "on" w: unprotectPassword = " 0000 " />
2-step. Open the html file with MS Office Word and unlock using an empty password.
Tools—> Options—> Security—> Unprotect
that is, nothing needs to be written in the password field (must be left blank)
