When working on several projects at once, or even one large project, it’s not uncommon to also be simultaneously editing several documents at once. At some point, each of us has probably looked down at the taskbar, noticed the number of documents open, and thought “When was the last time I saved any of these?”
Luckily, Microsoft Word has a great tool that allows you to save all open documents with ease.
- Click the File tab and select Options.
- In the left column, choose Quick Access Toolbar.
- Click the drop-down menu under “Choose commands from”.
- Select “Commands Not in the Ribbon”.
- Scroll down and choose Save All.
- Click the Add button and then select OK.
You will now see the Save All icon on the Quick Access Toolbar. By clicking on Save All, Word will prompt you to save each document or template that has any unsaved changes. This will be more efficient than navigating to each document individually to save it. Additionally, this will ensure that all documents are up to date in case unforeseen events occur such as your computer freezing or losing power.
