- In both cases, however, Word is talking about performing a task “in the background.” That is, it can go about its business while you continue working.
- After spending $150.00 for tech support the problem was solved.
- The Save tab of the Word Options dialog in Word 2007 Figure 3.
- Did a Repair and did not work.

Sick and tired of this rubbish. see here Click on the Microsoft Word and a window should pop up saying its fixing/repairing microsoft word. 5. This way I get a new editable version. It will not stay in checked.
Same with save. check my blog Do that by going to "run" and type 'normal.dot' and delete all those files. Windows is still 'reading' the file (similar to another networked user viewing it at the same time as you). I don't have Tools/Options/Save Tab.
I am using Word 2007 on Windows 7, and since going to a gov't supported network it has been much worse. cecilia e. Did a full Uninstall / Install -again- and did not work. this content Thank you for any guidance you can provide.
I figured it must have something to do with that, because Explorer wouldn't let me delete or rename the duplicate files I was forced to make - it told me they Not sure which caused the problem. Hide the preview panel in the top right corner of the document library and all read only docs will open normally.

I have Windows XP system. SHOW ME NOW CNET Â© CBS Interactive Inc. Â /Â All Rights Reserved. Mark,The process you describe is exactly what I did. Do a backup of the registry first so you have a fall back.
I had noticed the preview pane had recently come on (never used before) and thought this was possibly the result of an update. Very annoying.

Additionally, it does tend to happen a little more frequently with documents containing tables, headers/footers, or Table of Contents/indexes. Corey I default to .xlsx for saving (Excel 2013), but regularly have to save as .xls, .csv, or .txt. I am so grateful. However if you opened Excel first and then, say opened the file by picking it in the Recent list, it opened fine.
nothing happens. These new versions show a different page to open or save documents instead of the classic dialog box. I do a lot of file conversions but I only ever use a few formats (xls, xlsx, txt, csv, maybe sometimes a few more). Therefore it is a problem with Windows 7 or at least a problem with files created on XP â€¦Iâ€™ve tried creating a new Word 2003 file on Windows 7 and copying
If you want to save your documents in a different directory, you can permanently set it as default file save location. It seems that Word periodically, and without warning, converts a file to "read only" while it is being used. Working, saving to hard drive ok, then all of a sudden it's either read only or an error message appears telling me it can't save the file. What it doesn’t do: AutoRecovery is not a substitute for saving manually.
The only solution (other than stop buying and using Microsoft products) is to turn off the preview pane. Box comes up, asking if I want to save the changes to my document. Just use the browse button and select your desired location. If the last backup was 9 minutes ago, you will lose 9 minutes’ worth of information.

Box comes up, asking if I want to save the changes to my document.
