de-crypt an encrypted file from an organization

Remove protection from work files

If your organization uses Windows information protection, your work files and internal web sites are encrypted to protect them from prying eyes. This protection scrambles the data in your files so that only you or others in your organization can look at them.


There are a couple of ways you can easily recognize work content. In File Explorer, in the File ownership column, you’ll see contoso.com, where “contoso” is the name of your organization. Also, on internal sites in Microsoft Edge, you’ll see a briefcase symbol at the top right of the page.
Sometimes you may be stopped from opening an encrypted file with an app because that app isn’t managed by your organization.
Some organizations allow users to manually change a file from work to personal. To change a work file to personal, press and hold (or right-click) the file and select File ownership > Personal. Conversely, you can change a personal file to a work file by selecting File ownership > Work.
