Default Password protect Docx documents

I am using Office 2010 (32 bit) and I want to save a document with a password to prevent unauthorized users to open it. I can find how to save a template with Review, Restrict Editing but that falls short of what I want to do.
I am new to this forum but I did search for the subject first before I opened this thread.

When you save as the document/template, in the save as dialog box, bottom left hand corner is a Tools button, choose general and the save options for passwords are there.

Julie,

Thanks. Though I looked there before, I missed seeing the option. If you have input to programers, they could label it someting like "Protect" instead of "General Options." Just a thought. Thanks again. Tim

Glad I could help - Mainly 'cos I have XP and 2010 - If it was a later OS I would have been stumped myself. My son keeps trying to get me to upgrade to Windows 7 - but I am resisting!! as it feels a bit like going from Office 2000 to Office 2003 - which I thought was a bit of a control freak, but I must say I love 2010 and if this is the first version of Office you get bapisted into, then Monty Python comes to mind.

When I was a lad ..... I had to get up an hour before I went to bed.... lick road clean with tongue and several other quotes.

I got frustrated with Office 2007 as I couldn't get my head around the ribbon and where all the commands had gone to, so took a free course in ITQ Level 2, can't recommend it enough for anyone going from a pre 2007 Office setup -(I think they are still available) and have now qualified ITQ Level 3. Every day I learn something new. Chances are you won't forget where that password save is.
