How to Open Password Protected Excel File with Known Password
Since you are already aware of the password, part 1 is the simplest, easiest, and least time-consuming part. All that needs to be done by you is that you have to enter the password and the file will be opened in front of you in a matter of seconds.
These are the steps you can undertake to open password protected Excel file with a known password:
1. Open File - The first step is to go to the location where your to-be opened file is and double click on it. You can also right-click on the desired file and select the 'open' option. While there are other ways of opening the file too, these two are the most often selected ones.
2. Enter Password - Since the sheet you are striving to open is password-protected, you will be greeted with a pop-up where you will be asked to enter the password which will unprotect the sheet. Once unprotected, you will be able to see the contents of the sheet.
3. Click OK - Once you have entered the password, you will have to click on the 'OK' option which is present on the bottom right of the pop-up. This will lead you to the file, ready for you to see and work on it.
Another reason why this part has been termed as the easiest and fastest of all is that no matter which Excel version you are using - Excel 2007. Excel 2010, Excel 2016, or any other Excel version for that matter, the steps for each of them are the same.
Hope this helps you out, Jimmy
