Program window

Word Password Recovery Lastic features quite simple interface that takes literally several minutes to master it in full. In the main window of the program we can find the following elements:

1. Document list

This list contains Microsoft Word documents protected with a password. Depending on the work mode it displays either documents or passwords of a selected document.

a) Document mode. The document mode shows all Word documents found in the search mode, or opened explicitly.

Each column in this mode represents a password of a certain type: a password to open the document, a password to modify the document and so on. Conveniently, you can maximize the window or resize it to see all passwords at once. The status label tells if a particular password is set and whether or not you are able to crack it.

b) Password mode. The Passwords mode is activated when you click the Passwords button on the toolbar. This mode enlists all password types (a password to open, a modify password, a document protection password, a VBA project password) and the corresponding passwords.

If a password of some type is present in that document, you will see the Crack link near it. If a password has already been cracked, you will see it in the list. Clicking the Crack link allows you to crack any particular password, while the Crack button on the toolbar recovers or removes all passwords in the document.

Note that you can copy any recovered password to the clipboard using the button right next to it.

The status of a password reflects its state:

  • <none> means there is no password of that type.
  • <demo> means the password can be cracked in the registered version only.

For a full list of statuses please refer to this section.

2. Toolbar

The toolbar shows commands applicable to the current mode. The toolbar contains the following buttons (depending on the mode you may not see some of them):

Open – click this button to open a password-protected Microsoft Word document. Word Password Recovery Lastic automatically switches to the Password mode then.

Search – click this button to search a specified folder for password-protected Word documents. The program automatically scans the folder you have specified and lists all password protected Microsoft Word documents of any supported version it finds. Word Password Recovery Lastic automatically switches to the Documents mode then.

List / Passwords – this button allows you to switch between the Documents mode and the Password mode. For instance, if you want to see all passwords of a selected document, click the Passwords button. If you want to get back to the list of documents – click the List button.

Crack – click this button to crack all passwords in the selected document. Note that some passwords cannot be cracked. Please refer to this section for more info.
