The Big Email Mistake

by | Aug 18, 2020 | Apple Mac Software, Apple Tips & Tricks

When an email arrives with an attached Word or Excel file, most users open the document and start making changes. Once finished, they hit “Save”.

Later, they re-open the document by either locating the original email or using the Microsoft Word “Open Recent” menu.

Sounds reasonable enough . . . except for one giant problem.

Emails are often moved, deleted or just refuse to be found and on occasion Microsoft Word crashes and the “Open Recent” menu gets wiped.

If this happens you will never find the document. Even a Time Machine backup cannot help.

The work you’ve done is gone.

You can avoid all this heartache by developing a simple habit.

When you open a file attached to an email, immediately save it to a location on your Mac before you do any work on it.

That’s it. Everyone stay healthy.
