One of the most annoying problems my clients face is when they lose hours of work because they don’t save their documents as they work. But did you know that you can set up an automatic function in Word to save your work for you? Here’s how:
Under the Word pull-down tab, select Preferences. A dialog box will appear. In it, you’ll see Output and Sharing. Under that, click on Save.
In Save, you can select various autosave options including Create Backup Copy (helpful) and – the MOST IMPORTANT: Save Autorecover Info Every __ Minutes. You can set the number of minutes. The default setting is 10 minutes, and 5 minutes is probably very safe, but if you’re extra anxious, you can set it to autosave every minute if you want.
