    Password Protect (Word XP)

    Hi there,
    When we moved to Word XP 4 years ago, I was told it would be a great idea to password protect the Normal template. Unfortunately, it interferes with printing multiple files - you have to enter the password every time!

    The problem is that I forget where it was set... and how to remove it! Does anyone know how to remove the password from Normal.dot?
    Thanks a bunch!
    Diana

    How does Microsoft Word password recovery work? provides information about the various passwords that can be set. It provides links to some tools that can open a password-protected document. One of them, Elcomsoft, has been mentioned in the Lounge several times. Googling for word document lost password or something similar will turn up more options.
