Hi you techi's I wonder if you could throw some light on a problem I have with Word when saving the document?

 

Microsoft Office Word 2007 OP XP Pro

 

Once I have opened a new document (or old one come to that) and wish to save it, there are 2 ways I know of for doing so.

 

1) Use the 'disc' icon next to the Microsoft office icon top left hand corner which sits in the uppermost quick action toolbar along with a printer icon, ABC, and arrow for going back a stage.

 

2) Use the Microsoft icon and come down to 'Save As' then place the document in appropriate file I want.

 

Now 2) works perfectly, but 1) doesn't and sends the document into a wrl or some such file with a ~$ before the document name.

 

and it says it can't save the document, then I lose the document altogether or cannot open it if I do find it.

 

It's not a big problem, but it's annoying as I know that's not supposed to happen and probably I have a corrupted 'something' gizmo inside the machine.

 

Any ideas what it is and how I can remedy it?

 

Thanks, no rush.

p.s. I still have those 3 blown capacitors inside the pc waiting to be fixed, whether that has any remotely associated causation connection to this problem only you guys can say, just thought I'd mention that.

I think the disk save button settings have been lost, so it does not have a clue where you are trying to save the document. Somewhere within Word you can enter the instructions re the default file save options.

 

Does this link help ?

For some reason, every PC of a clients we've set up has this option missing too. Very odd.

 

Some office update or windows related problem not allowing the default to be configured.

 

I have had the same before.

 

Computer technology does save time on certain jobs and storage, but it does actually cause new problems. How many millions of hours of lost productivity are caused by computer problems. My experience is that sometimes hours can be lost per employee per week, due to IT issues. Companies should be investing in IT staff, not outsourcing work.

The issue happens when we deploy the software through group policy's. Must be some bad settings there.

 

We're an outsourced IT company, our clients simply aren't large enough to require full time staff. Our largest client currently is 16 people, We have someone (mainly me) onsite for two days a week, any more than that isn't needed.

 

It also allows us to suit their needs better, providing 24/7 support if required that a member of staff wouldn't be able to do.
