Just a couple of Word things that I need when preparing examination papers!!

How do you remove Hidden Text from a Word Document?

Working with a copy of the document (just in case!!)

  • Use Office button (or File) > Prepare > Inspect document > [Inspect]
  • You will see the Hidden  Text option and a button [Remove All]

How do you add a password to your document?

  • Use Office button (or File) > Prepare > Encrypt document and enter your password
  • then re-enter it to make sure.

Warning – it is pretty well impossible to recover the document if you forget the password!!

How do you remove a password from a file?

  • Use Office button (or File) > Prepare > Encrypt document and delete your password
