Adjusting Auto-Save in Office 2007

Posted on: March 18th, 2010 by

1X1If you’ve ever lost your work due to a computer freeze or power loss then you know how frustrating it can be.  In Microsoft Office, there is a way to help prevent such a disaster. All you need to do is adjust the auto-save interval time so that you know how often and where your documents will be saved. Here are the steps in Microsoft Word to set up this option; note that the steps are the same for PowerPoint and Excel:

  • 1. Click on the Microsoft Logo in the top left corner.
  • 2. At the bottom of the screen, select Word Options.
