Google Chrome is not just a web browser; sometimes it can save time with it’s amazing features. Both PDF Reader and PDF Writer are built-in with Google Chrome by default.
So, it allows us to remove the password from a PDF File without the need of any extra software and it works on every operating system. So, let us see the process step by step.
STEP 1: First we need to open the password protected PDF File in to the Google Chrome browser. To do that, just drag the PDF File in to the Chrome browser.
STEP 2: Now, Google Chrome asks to enter the password. Enter the correct password and just hit enter.
STEP 3: Next step is to press “Ctrl + P” on the keyboard which allows you to print the document. But, now instead of printing the document we will use the features of Google Chrome.
STEP 4: Now, you can see the destination printer on the left side. Click on “Change” button and Chrome shows you the different destinations.
STEP 5: Under “Local Destinations” click on “Save as PDF”.
STEP 6: Now destination has been changed to “Save as PDF”. Click on “Save” button and it asks for the location to save the PDF file.
STEP 7: Now, your PDF file has been saved on your local drive and when you open it next time, it does not ask for the password.
STEP 8: If you want to change the local destination to Google Drive and One Note, click on “change” again and choose Save to Google Drive under Google Cloud Print section and Send To OneNote under Local Destinations respectively.
Note: In order to save the password removed PDF file to Google Drive using the above steps, make sure that you have logged in to your Gmail. Otherwise, you will not see the “Save to Google Drive” option.
