This feature in Word is really a recovery feature, it DOES NOT SAVE your documents in true sense. What it does is save changes or entered text to a recovery file automatically for you at time intervals that you must set up. This function is VERY useful if you experience power outages, power failures, or you have to restart your computer before you could save or close your document.
TIP: You must have a document open to set this function and it is protection for your OPEN documents.
Open any document.
~~ Move POINTER to Tools (Located at top of your screen) and CLICK ~~ Move POINTER to Options and CLICK
An Options Box will appear and you will notice several * Tabs * you can click on. There is a lot of * stuff * here that you have probably never seen and a lot of things you can change and customize, but for now letís continue.
~~ Move POINTER to SAVE Tab and CLICK You will see several little box buttons and you want to make sure button SAVE AUTORECOVER info every: is checked. If itís not checked:
~~ Move POINTER to that box button and CLICK
Notice that you can change minutes that you want WORD to automatically save your open documents in case of a power surge or failure. I have mine set at 10. To change yours: ~~ Move POINTER and CLICK on little up or down arrow to change minutes. ~~ Move POINTER to OK and CLICK
WARNING, WARNING: After a surge, failure or a restart, WORD will open RECOVERY file and you MUST SAVE it or it will be DELETED!
