Ways to Enable Autosave Feature
Open Microsoft Word 2003 application and click on 'Tools' option at the top menu. Then select 'Options' from the drop down list of options. Now, click on 'Save' tab. Then the user can configure autosave feature under the autosave or auto recover category. The user can also mention the time limit for the autosave functionality to save the Microsoft Word document.
Issues With the Feature
The autosave feature included in Microsoft Word 2003 application is not beneficial for users, except for the auto recover option provided. The feature enabled on the user system saves documents automatically at regular intervals mentioned by the user. The feature does not replace the original 'Save' command since the autosave option is effective only when power failures occur.
Autosave should be enabled on the Microsoft Word application. But the user should use the 'Save' command while creating documents. Data loss due to system shut down and accidental deletion of the created documents can be avoided by saving the documents at regular intervals while writing the contents along with the autosave feature enabled on the system.
