Have you ever started a new Microsoft Office Excel, Word, or PowerPoint file and been getting pretty far along when you accidentally close the document before saving it (or lose power and the computer shuts down, etc.)? Here’s a helpful little tip for any of you out there that happen to find yourself in the situation.
Microsoft Office has a fantastic feature built in where it can recover unsaved new documents (just in case you do what I did)! Now in order to use this feature, you will need to have Save AutoRecover information… and Keep the last autosaved version if I close without saving
You can also browse to one of the following file locations to open the file, depending on your operating system:
Windows 7/Windows Vista C:\Users\User_Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\UnsavedFiles
