Hello everyone! I have a somewhat unusual question and I hope someone will be able to help me.

 

I have received a *.docx file and I am trying to determine its author. I tried checking the properties of the document and clicking on the "Details" button. This way I could see that the author is listed as being "Учетная запись Майкрософт". My basic Russian skills tell me that this means as much as "Microsoft account". I have also tried to open the document with Editor since sometimes this allegedly reveals some additional info, but I was not successful.

 

What I am trying to figure out is whether it is possible for me to determine the author of this document somehow (legally ofc). Does anybody have any experience on this topic?  :headscratch:

  • Rename (or make a copy and rename) of your document from name.docx to name.zip
  • Double click on name.zip and it will open
  • Click on the docProps folder
  • There is a document called core.xml. If you open that file in Notepad, you'll see all the document information
