Hello, which version of word are you using?

This article shows you how to remove a password from a document in word 2010.

Alternatively, try these steps:
  • Find the Word Document you want to remove the protection from in Explorer/Finder
  • Rename the file ending to .zip
  • Open the zip file
  • Inside the zip their should be a password.xml file
  • Delete this file
  • Rename your Word Document back to .doc or .docx


Regards
