How to shorten the auto-save interval in Word 2013?

Can I change the auto-save interval in MS Word to make it shorter? I just finished rewriting a block of text thanks to a momentary power loss in my building. Annoying!

It looks like Carla has a great answer for this.

Hi LolaBelle, I am sorry to hear what happened. I suppose we have all been thorugh similar experiences at some time with Power loss. I have just learned to almost instictively press Ctrl+S as i type as often as i can.


Regarding the Auto-Save interval, you should do this:

Click File > Options > Save. (Make sure the Save AutoRecover information every x minutes box is selected.)


Thanks! I also didn't think about just getting in the habit of hitting Ctrl+S regularly.
