Solution: Password protect Microsoft Office 2007 words document

Posted by: mynag In: Solution & Tips|Windows

Previously, I’ve mentioned how to password protect your word document on Microsoft Office 2003 and below. Using Microsoft Office 2007 to do that is pretty similar.

  1. Click top left Office icon and click <Save As> in the menu.
  2. On the bottom right corner of the Save As dialog box, click <Tools>
  3. Click on <General Options>
    At the File encryption options for this document, key in the your desired password that will be required to open the file to read.If you also wish to protect the word document from being modified, you may also enter another different password at the Passwords to modifytextbox. Or you could just leave them blank if you only need one password to prevent reading and writing.
  4. Click <Protect Document> and save the document to complete the process.
