Auto-Save in Word


Auto-Save in Word

If you have ever lost a Word document, you are probably aware of the importance of saving your work. Thankfully, Microsoft Word will automatically save your document for you in the event that you aren't a frequent saver. You can make sure this feature is turned on in Microsoft Word by clicking Options from the Tools menu. From the Options dialog box, select the Save tab. Make sure that there is a check mark on "Save Autorecover info every:"  I suggest auto-saving every 1 minute.  Be mindful that this feature does not save over the original.  Rather, it saves a recovery file.  In the event you do not exit Word, due to a power failure or a computer freeze, when you ruin Word again, it will present you with an auto-saved version of the document.
