How to Turn on AutoSave in Microsoft office

AutoSave in Microsoft Office is a feature that will automatically save the document you’re working on at certain time intervals that you can set as shown below

  1. Open your Word or Excel application, click on the File tab, then click Options on the left-hand pane <<If you’re using office 2007, just click the Office button at the top left corner and choose “Options“.>>
  2. In options, select the Save tab on the left navigation pane. Tick the “Save AutoRecover information every” checkbox. In the minute’s box, you can set the time interval at which your document will be automatically saved.
  3. You also can tick the “Keep the last AutoRecovered version if I close without saving” checkbox.
  4. Now, select the Advanced tab on the left navigation pane. Scroll down to the Save section then tick the “Allow background saves” checkbox. Click OK to save your changes.

At this point, you’ve successfully turned on AutoSave in Microsoft office. When you forgot to save your work in case of a power cut or accidentally close your application without saving, there is a good chance you can recover your latest contents.
