Editors' review

This utility recovers lost passwords of Word documents and templates, but its frustrating trial download only reports that it has found a password and does not reveal what it is. Word Key, with its singular window, is simple to use. The window explains how to check a single file, but there are methods for checking folders or drives. The results are quickly displayed, even if they just serve to tease in the trial. Though the manufacturer recommends visiting its site for an updated version, this version will search for File-Modify, document, and File-Option passwords. Several parameters, including the number of characters and checking for lowercase or uppercase letters, digits, symbols, or spaces, can be readily changed. Unless you just want to know if a file is password-protected, we cannot recommend Word Key.
