Word 2007: Change the AutoRecover Save Interval

Posted May 1, 2007 by Rob Rogers in Microsoft Word

AutoRecover can be a real lifesaver if disaster strikes and you lose the document you were working on. By default, Word saves AutoRecover information every 10 minutes. You can change this interval to be more or less frequent by following these steps:

1. Click the Office Button.

2. Click the Word Options button.

3. In the left pane, select Save.

4. In the right pane, under Save documents, make sure the Save AutoRecover information checkbox is checked. Change the number of minutes to the desired value.

5. Click OK.
