Opening/Saving Word Documents

Here's a shortcut for opening or saving a document in Microsoft Word: click Tools, then Options. Then click File Locations. Highlight Documents, then click Modify. Then find the folder where you'd like your documents kept. Now Word will always open to this folder, and will automatically save to it. Another tip: repeat these steps, except click AutoRecover files instead of Documents. Now Word will automatically save your document to this same folder every few minutes, protecting you from losing your work in the event of a power outage.
