    Select File>Open...
    In the "File of Types" box select "Recover text from any file" and then open your chosen file. Word will then try to display all the text in that file including hidden metadata. You need to scroll to the end of the document to view the details of the people who saved the file (if it is there).

    DO NOT save the file when you have opened it by using this method.

    The next time you open a file you will need to change the "File of Types" box back to your usual setting.
