Did you purchase microsoft word? You should have a product key either on a pamplet or on the disc itself. Yo won't be able to use the program without it. When you installed it, it should have asked for a key then.

Not long ago I was just wrote an article about How to Password Protect Microsoft Office 2007 Documents. Now I’ll write a similar article about office 2010 by popular demand.
Microsoft Office 2010 indeed simplified the process to password protect and encrypt office documents. Which was considered a commendable improvement over password protecting documents under Office 2007. as the new process for Office 2010 is consistent across the core Office product line which including Word 2010, Excel 2010, PowerPoint 2010 etc. so here I only need to show you how the process just once using Microsoft Word 2010 as example.

1. Click the File tab, then Click Info. On the menu to the right Click Protect Document and
Click Encrypt with Password.

2. The Encrypt Document dialog will appear, Type in a password and then Click OK to finish.

Please note – It’s very important to use a STRONG Password or Pass Phrase to protect your word document. Using a long PASS PHRASE (IE:I enjoyed myself today!) however with 10 or more characters will significantly increase the encryption strength of the document and decrease the likelihood someone will be able to break the encryption and gain access to your document.
After setting a password, your document should be protected!
Having password protected your word document? Someone should ask what if I forgot the password. So that’s what I’ll show below.
Follow the step-to-step guide To decrypt Word 2010 Document Using word password recovery 5.0
With this user guide, even a new user can fully control Word Password Recovery 5.0 in less than a minute.
Step1: Click “File>Open” in the Menu or the “Open” button to browse in the Word document.

Step3: Click “Start” button in the Menu to initiate the program.

Step4: The program is searching the password. Some time later, a message box pops up to you, displaying the expected password. Click “Remove All Passwords from the File” to remove all passwords (Password to Open and Password to Edit) from the file. Click “OK“.

SOFTWARE MICROSOFT 2007 DOWNLOAD


MS Office 2007 is available here:
http://www.nextag.com/MS-office/shop-html?nxtg=3a570a1c0591-970B8697213DFCAC

Why not just get Office 2010? Office 2010 has the same great basic layout as 2007, just more features, and you can try it for free:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try/

If you don't like the price of Office 2010, try Open Office: http://www.openoffice.org/
Open office will open and save documents as .doc (Microsoft documents) so they can be read by Microsoft Office products. Open Office really is a good product, and it is FREE.

Microsoft also has a free online Office (Skydrive):

Sorry, but if you are looking for a free download of Microsoft Office 2007, we are not allowed to provide that info on this site because it is illegal.

I rebooted and now microsoft office word keeps asking for produch key . i got it used and do not have it .what # can i put in


Hmnnn, probably you had a free edition of office suite application installed on your computer which will be valid for only 60 days. If you wish to continue using all the application of office suite, you will have to purchase the full version of office suite.
-See the following link for the price comparison: http://news.office-watch.com/t/n.aspx?articleid=1360&zoneid=10 If you wish to continue using the free trial version again, you will have to install different version of office trial suite again. -For example, If you had Office 2010 Home and Student trial edition installed on the computer before and it is expired, you can uninstall it and install the Office 2010 Professional trial edition on the computer which will be valid for another 60 days.
Link: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try/
However, you also have the option of using the open office suite which is absolutely free. The open office suite provides all the features and functionality of the Microsoft application.
You can download the open office suite for free from the following link:

How to Password Protect And Access a Password-Protected Word Document


How to Password Protect a Microsoft Word Document If you are working on documents that are important and shouldn’t be changed, then there is a way to password protect them so they cannot be changed except by you. You can also make the documents unavailable to open unless the person has the password as well.
Instructions
Things You’ll Need:
  • A Computer
  • Microsoft Office with Microsoft Word
  • Word Documents
  • General Knowledge of Microsoft Word
Step 1
Open Microsoft Word and open or create the document that you want to password protect.
Step 2
Click on “File” in the toolbar and select “Save As”.
Step 3
Click on the “Tools” menu and select “Security Options”.
Step 4
This will open a “Security Options” window. You may now set a password under the “Password to open” box, “Password to modify” box or both.
Step 5
Once you type in the password of your choosing you can opt to make the file “Read-only” by checking the appropriate box. You may then click “OK” to save your changes and then save your document as usual.
How to Access a Password-Protected Word Document Accessing a password-protected Microsoft Word document is only possible when you have the correct password that opens the document. Encryption and security levels differ for separate versions of Word. Microsoft 2007 doesn’t offer any solutions to allow a user to retrieve forgotten passwords and Microsoft does not allow its employees to help in retrieving or breaking passwords. If you do not have the correct password for the document, you will be unable to access it.
Instructions
Things You’ll Need:
  • Microsoft Word
  • Document password
Step 1
Navigate to the location on your hard drive where you stored the Word document.
Step 2
Double-click on the document to begin opening it. A separate window will appear that prompts you to enter the document password.
Step 3
Enter the password, which is case-sensitive.
Step 4
Click the “Open” button or hit the “Enter” key. If the password was correct, the document will open. If it was not correct, another window will display advising you the password was incorrect and prompting you to try again.

I have a Lexmark 8300 most funtions work well from time to time scanning is an issue however OCR funtion WILL NOT WORK. I have the Instal CD, it seams to instal but can not use the function. I am running...


You must have a WORD TYPE program to save the scan too. I had this same problem until I installed Microsoft Office 2003 as well. It has been awhile but that is the case and mine now works perfect. You can get a free download of it for trial use. Or even an open source word program will work. If it ask you where to save the scan choose word or office if you already have them. the reason is you must use an editable program to edit the document.
Don't be surprised if the document you see isn't 100% as the document you scan because this is normal. You must be 100% that your scanned document matches - it is up to you to edit it for mistakes as they are not perfect. Some are in fact way better than others. The program with Lexmark is usually good. c88085b.jpg
