Sometimes when I have something unhappy, I would take to my friends’ place and ask for help. I have two good friends and they all good at computers. I asked them for help if I got some trouble. And recently I troubled in Excel password recovery issue. I am taking over in an office and was not left the password for a protected worksheet. Is there a way to unlock the worksheet without the password? I lost my Excel password by accident and would like to find out the solutions. Is there any help to unlock Excel password for me? I will ask my friends.
After several minutes chat online, both of them gives me some advice from free way to paid way. I am concerned about all of them and prepare to looking for some useful and effective way for myself. I have to say, all of these three ways are very good but not every methods is my best choice. I have to think about them and think about them.
Method 1: Remember Your Password
As a Microsoft Excel user I have to set up password for my comuter but it can’t stop the possiblility of losing passwords. What I have to do firstly is trying to remember my passsword thoroughly. Do not forget my password in any condition. To forget password is so terible that I have experenced it with deep empression. In this method my friend advises me to write down the password in a little notebook and hide it in some personal place like my bedroom.
Method 2: The Repair Shop
When we lost way in the street we can ask the police for help. When we are hungry we can go to the restaurant and have a dinner. When we graduate from the university we can find a jod and make money for our life. When we are off duty we can go home and take a bath. Certainly when we lost Excel password we can take our computer to the repair shop. However, not everyone has the patience to do this.
