Have you ever worked hard on a document only to have some unexpected error make you lose your work before you got a chance to save it?

You know that Word auto-saves your work periodically, but how can you retrieve those auto-saved files?
You can see the path to the auto-saved files in the Save options.
In Word 2016, click on File then choose Options. See and change your settings under Save.
Here you can also set how often Word should auto-save your files.
