Saving a Document

Whether you create your new document using the Blank Document template, a Word template, or a document wizard, at some point you will want to save the new document. Saving your work is one of the most important aspects of working with any software application. If you don't save your Word documents, you could lose them.

Caution

Save and Save Often You don't want to lose your valuable documents as you create them in Word. Power failures, an accidentally kicked-out power cord, or your computer locking up as you work can all lead to lost work. If you are really absent-minded about periodically saving your work, use the AutoSave feature. Select the Tools menu, then Options. Click the Save tab on the dialog box. Make sure the Save AutoRecoverInfo Every check box is selected. Use the minutes box to set the time interval between autosaves. This feature doesn't replace periodically saving your document using the Save command, but it will help you recover more of your document if there is a problem such as a power failure.
