To open a password protected word document, you will need:

- Obtain the password from the source. The first step is to check with the word document source for the password. Ask yourself this question: Where does the word document come from? If it is from someone else, ask that person for the password. If you are the word document source, you will need to locate your password.
- Verify the password with the source. The second step is to make sure you have the right password on hand. Verifying the password can save you time. The other reason to do so is that you never know they might have given you the wrong password in the first place.
- Enter the correct password. The last step is to type in the correct password at the "Enter Password To Open File" dialog box. Double check that your "Caps Lock" on the keyboard isn't on. The reason is that the password is always case sensitive. After you have entered the password, click the OK button.
