Save all open documents and templates simultaneously


Recommended Posts

This is very helpful if you spend a lot of time in word and creating documents for work or personal use.

 

We've all had the unfortunate experience of losing changes to a document because of a power surge or application error, and we all know that the key to minimizing damage from these events is to save frequently. When you're working in multiple Word documents at once, there's a fast way to save all the documents at the same time rather than manually saving each document. To save all of them at once, press and hold down [shift], and then select File | Save All from the menu bar.

 

When you're making changes to the Normal.dot template, such as recording macros or adding other customization, it's important to save those changes frequently. Unlike File | Save (or [Ctrl]S, [command]S in Word v. X), which only saves open documents, Save All saves changes to open templates as well.

Now that's what I call a really valuable tip. Thanks Minnie.
