Password-Protecting Your Files
Password-Protecting Your Files
To prevent prying eyes from peeking at your Word, Excel, or PowerPoint
files, you can password-protect them. That way, if someone wants to open,
view, or edit your files, she must use your password. If someone doesn’t
know your password, she won’t be able to view — let alone edit — your files.
You can buy programs off the Internet that can crack an Office 2010
passwordprotected file. For real security, don’t rely on Office 2010’s password-protection
To password-protect a file, follow these steps:
1. Load Word, Excel, or PowerPoint.
2. Click the File tab.
The Backstage View appears.
3. Choose Save As.
The Save As dialog box appears.
4. Click the Tools button.
A pull-down menu appears, as shown in Figure 19-2.
