  • A) Open document > Select edit menu > choose select all > then choose copy from edit menu.
    Open new document > edit menu> paste.
    Select tools menu> choose options> window opens with options. Select form different tabs the edit tab> make sure that al desired boxes are selected.
    Select save tab>choose and mark box>ask about properties
    accept or Apply options and close.
    Save new document different name. When saving it should ask if you want to save properties> choose not save. Maybe it asks if you want to modify properties> choose yes> select box archive amongst read only, hidden or archive.
    If this does not work.

    B)There are many 3rd party utilities which claim to recover forgotten word password:
    The program that I recommend is the Word Password Recovery 5.0  It recovers/removes the "Password

    to Open" and "Password to Edit" for you to view and edit the document freely.
