how do i remove encryption from excell folder

i have encryption on two excell files concerning finance. recently the folders are reluctant to open and the code word pop up shows twice and often does not open at all. i want to remove the encryption as a first step. any help please.

MS Does not offer any advice for removeing file password protection for an excel file (or any other file for that matter)


There are unsupported workarounds to be found via a google/bing search

I have in the past used some with success
