Losing work is great for terrible moods.
There is nothing like spending an hour hammering away at your keyboard making edits to an important document, only to find that you're unable to save it when you're done.
If you're experiencing this issue and Microsoft Word is throwing errors instead of saving your hard work, there is still hope for you.
There's a good chance the file you're working on is read-only.
Saving a new copy will often fix this issue.
If you can't do that, copying the body of a document to another application should do the trick.
Select the "File" tab on the Microsoft Word toolbar. Click "Save As."
Browse to the location you wish to store the file in. Select a format from the "Save as type" drop-down list.
Microsoft Word 2010 will default to the .docx format.
Use "Word 97-2003 Document" to save the file as a .doc file.
Type a name for the file and click "Save."
A new copy of the document will be saved to the location you specified.
Your edits will be included in this new document.
This procedure will get you around read-only permissions.
Use Another Program
Select your Microsoft Work window and press "Ctrl" and "A" simultaneously.
This will highlight the entire document.
Press "Ctrl" and "C" simultaneously to copy the whole document to the Windows clipboard.
Launch an alternate text-editing application.
WordPad and Notepad are included with Windows so they make a logical choice.
Applications like Microsoft Works Word Processor or AbiWord should work as well.
Press "Ctrl and "V" simultaneously to paste your document into the second application.
Click "File" and select "Save As." Select a location, a format and a name for the file and click "Save."
Hope this helps
