Losing Office password would be a headache for those who prefer to set a long and complex password to protect their sensitive information. It is a bit tough because there is no built-in feature for Microsoft Office to remove Office password like Window system. There are two options for them: Removing Office password before they forgot it; Using Office Password Remover to solve all potential risks of losing Office password.
For MS Office 2003, open the document for which you would like to remove passwords, click "File"->"Open File". And then hit "Tools" and select "Options" from the drop-down list. Now a window pops up, choose "Security" tab. And delete all yo ｀u password. And click "OK".
For MS Office 2007, Double click the document and enter your password to unlock it. Click "Microsoft Office" button in the upper-left corner of the document. Hover your mouse over "Prepare" and then select "Encrypt Document". Press "Delete" or "Backspace" to remove the password in the popping password text box. Click "OK" to confirm the settings. And then Press "Ctrl+S" to save your changes.
