    I just use Word and password protect the file. By 'air gap' I mean I'm never connected to the internet when editing a file containing passwords and the USB stick containing the password file is removed before I reconnect. Best to restart the PC if you are paranoid about password data remaining in memory!
    I think you mean Microsoft word right? I don't have it so I think I'm going to put my passwords into a password protected 7zip archive and onto a usb stick.

    Does 7zip load any opened files into a temp folder?

    Yes, I meant MS Word. Some of those archive utilities have quite good password protection. I can't advise on 7Zip and whether it stores temporary files.

    I think we can mark this as solved, there are some pretty good suggestions here...
