    I was experimenting with encryption and password protection of a Word file.
    So, it's encrypted and password protected. I know the password. How can I
    now get the file back to where it's NOT password protected anymore? Surely
    there's some way to go in, using the password, and then turn it off?

    Open the document by using the password. Open the same dialog where you applied
    the password, blank out the boxes, click OK, and save the document.
