No Password Prompt


I am new here and hoping someone can help.  I did a PC Reset on my Windows 10 PC after saving my files and folders to an external HD.  I had password-protected a few files and after the Reset completed and I set up Windows 10 again, I tried opening the password protected Excel files and was unable to do so.  There was no password prompt window that would normally pop up, allowing me to input my password.

I am assuming the "old" version of my OS was erased or at least displaced with a different one in the Reset process, taking such things as my password structure for Office documents with it.  Is there any way to open the Excel file on my ext. HD?



Did you password protect them using the Excel feature to do that or some custom method, like using a macro?
