SAVING

Save Your Documents the Best Way

The Annoyance:

I've deleted everything in this document except one paragraph, and the file is still far too large to send via email.

The Fix:

This happens because Word's fast-saving option works by appending the latest changes to the end of the file instead of saving the entire file. So when you delete most of the document, Word adds the details of that deletion to the end of the document, but the material remains in the document file. This not only makes the file size even bigger than it was before, but it can be indiscreet or even dangerous when you share documents with other people—your documents may still contain material that you deleted long ago.
