I have some old files in MS Word. To open them, I'm required to provide a password. How do I do this to files created in Win 10?  Also, how do I created a password to gain access into the computer (i.e. after it boots up, but before going into windows?)

You need to start Windows (or Linux or MAC) to gain access to the files on the computer.

You can access the BIOS without running Windows but that is about all. Is there a BIOS password?

There are some manual methods to unlock and access an MS Word file without losing any data. I have got a purely informative article explaining how to lock and unlock a Word document in a hassle-free way. Read it carefully and resolve your query:

It will surely help you!
