  1. Hi everyone, so I had heard that there is a way to get into the archived versions of a file that have been saved on autosave in Word 2007. So if I had a document open and wanted to get back to an older version of it, any ideas how if there is a way to do that or not? If so, how?

    Word will save its autosave files in C:\Documents and settings\USER\My Documents\word2007AutoRecover
    However, wouldn't it be easier to spam undo?
    Also, I don't think it saves changes done to a document in a different session.

    The files will be hidden so you must have View Hidden Files and Folders on in my computer options-> view.
