Home / Computer / AUTO-SAVE Your work in MICROSOFT OFFICE


Crashes happen. The power goes out. And sometimes, people accidentally close a file without saving.
Losing your work is incredibly frustrating. All’s well and good if you remember to constantly save, but that’s an unnecessary hassle. We’re going to show you how you can auto-save your work across a variety of popular Windows applications.To avoid losing all your work when stuff like that happens, make sure AutoRecover and AutoSave are turned on.

Auto-save functions can be really useful if your software or system crashes, if you forget to save when closing an application, or if you simply don’t want to have to remember to save.

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office doesn’t have an in-built function to auto-save your work. Of course, you can press Ctrl + S at any time to save, but that’s not the same thing. However, if you’re using the online version of Office then any changes you make will automatically be saved, so consider switching to that if you want a proper auto-save feature.

Instead, the Office programs have a feature called AutoRecover, available across Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more. This will attempt to save your file if the program unexpectedly closes. When you open the program, it’ll then offer to try and recover the file. Note that you should use this as a safety net, not a foolproof method to save your files.

To enable AutoRecover or adjust your settings, open an Office program and navigate to File > Options > Save. Tick Save AutoRecover information every X minutes and then click Browse… to choose your AutoRecover file location.

Find an automatically saved or recovered file

The next time that you open an application, files in the AutoRecovery folder are listed in the Open Recent list. Or you can find the files in the /Users/ username/Library/Application Support/ Microsoft/Office/Office 2011 AutoRecovery.

In the Finder, find automatically saved files in /Users/ username/Library/Application Support/ Microsoft/Office/Office 2011 AutoRecovery.
