:tazz: I typed a document in Microsoft Word and neglected to save it. Is there a way to retrieve it? I tried search but found nothing.

Hi grampybob...

I can give you a definite "Maybe" on that one... :tazz:

If the MS Word AutoSave feature was enabled, you may be able to recover at least some of the document.

From MS Word, open the "Tools" menu, click "Options", and then click the "File Locations" tab. If the space next to "AutoRecover files" is blank, then your data is lost. If there is a location, go to that location and open the document.
