A lot of Word users forget to save their work regularly. And those who do remember find it a bit of a nuisance to stop what they're doing every few minutes to save the file. To be safe, set Word to save their documents automatically at regular intervals, as follows:
- From the Tools menu, choose Options, and click the Save tab. In Word 2007, click the Office button, click Word Options, and then select Save in the left pane.
- Check the Save AutoRecover Info Every option in the Save Options section (Save Documents section in 2007).
- Select a minute interval from the Minute control. You can choose a value by clicking the up and down arrows or just enter the number from the keyboard.
- Click OK.
