Finding a word in Word


Tips for using Find in Word
What if you wanted to find a specific word, in Word? You know, you are looking for the word ‘know’ but you keep getting other words, too, like knowledge, known, acknowledge, knowable, etc.

You may say, “I always want to find a whole word; what’s the deal here?” Well … the deal is that Find will find everything that contains the word for which you are searching, as mentioned above.

A whole word, to Office and Word, is a group of characters surrounded by punctuation or spaces.

Word has a special function in Find, called ‘Find whole words only’ and it can help reduce the number of false hits. If you open the Find feature (Ctrl-F), and click the More button, you will find (no pun intended) this feature.

30844ed.jpg


Okay, so to see the difference, search for the word ‘know’ in the following sentence. “This sentence is a way to show that you know the difference between education and knowledge.”
There is only one appearance of the word ‘know’ within the text; searching without the 'Find whole words only' option would actually find 2 matches. The other match comes as part of the front-end of the last word of the sentence, which is ‘knowledge.’

Before you go and use this option, understand that it will not find plurals and return them with your search results.

Searching for the word ‘know’ in the following sentence will not produce any matches: "It is not clear that he knows what this means."

Looking for word document I did not save


Open Microsoft Word if it's not already open.

This may automatically open a list of your recent unsaved files, which with any luck includes the one you're looking for.


If this happens, simply open this document from the list.


Click the blue "File" tab in Word, and then click "Info" on the left side of the screen.


Click the "Manage Versions" icon to bring up a list of options.


Click "Recover Unsaved Documents" from this list. This opens a list of your unsaved documents.


Select the document you're looking for in this list, and then click "Open."

This opens the document, which now has a yellow bar across the top.


Click the "Save As" button in the yellow bar.

Save your document with your desired name to your preferred location.


or


The power just went out while you working on an important document you forgot to save.

Do not panic because Microsoft Word comes equipped with a feature that automatically will recover files you did not save.


Typically, this feature works by default.

The program allows you to change how often Word saves your documents and you can adjust the location where Microsoft Word saves these "Auto Recover" files.


Open up Microsoft Word.

Do not click on a file to open the program.

Instead, open the program by double-clicking on the program's icon.


Allow the program to load for a couple of minutes before clicking on anything.


Look on the left side of the screen.

If Microsoft Word recovered the file, a "Document Recovery" task pane will load.


Find the file's date.

Double-click on the file in the "Document Recovery" pane.


This will open the file in Microsoft Word.


Click on the "File Menu" and select "Save As."


Save the document as a ".doc" file type, and type a name for your document in the "File Name" box.


or


Open Microsoft Word to determine if the program auto-recovered your document.

If your software is set to auto-save your document every couple of minutes, when the program is restarted, any document that was not saved prior to closing, may appear in the auto-recover window on the left side of the screen.


Click on your document, and the last-saved file will open.

However, anything you typed after the last auto-save is gone, but at least you haven't lost the entire document.


Search the auto-recover files manually if the auto-recover pane did not appear when you opened MS Word.


Click the Start menu at the bottom of your computer screen, and click "Search." Some operating systems have the search option as a part of the Start menu.


Search for "*.asd" to search for any recovered files.


If you find the file, open Word, and click "Open" in the menu.

Search through all files, and locate the file that ended in .asd. Click "Open" to view your file.


If you are using Word 2002 or 2003, you need to restart your computer after clicking "Open." Re-open Word after your computer re-boots to view the recovered file.


Check your backup files.

If you have the "Always create backup copy" option selected in Word, you may be able to find a backup copy of your document.


Find the location where you last saved the document.

Check for the extension .wbk.


If there aren't any, search your whole computer for files with that extension.

Open your file by clicking "Open" in Word, and search all files for the .wbk extension.

Once you locate the file, click "Open."


Look in the temporary files on your computer.

Complete a search for files that end in the extension .tmp by typing "*.tmp" into the search box.


Narrow the search down to specific dates of when you were working on the document.

If the file does not show up, try searching for the "~*.*" convention.


Some temporary files are in this format instead.

If your document is now in your temporary files, you will need to recover the damaged document.

Search for it within Word.


Click "Open and Repair" when you find it.






Hope this helps

Increase gmail account space ....




How to find large e-mails/attachments in GMail and delete them easily?

Many a times, you are struck with a scenario that only a last few % of free space is avilable in Gmail. Though GMail has been growing everyday (or every 2 seconds) in increasing your online storage space - but yet for a person like me who has been using GMail for more than 5 years now as a primary e-mail account, it does become full at many a times.


Today my Gmail account read as "You are currently using 6538 MB (88%) of your 7429 MB.". Now that was a bit worrying for me and decided to bring it down atleast by 5% and here's what I did for it.


Head over to the search bar on top of your Gmail account and type as "has:attachment (*.mov || .mp3 || *.wm || *.avi || *.wmv )" and the results you get could be the large file attachments that are sitting in your GMail account and making it bulky. Evaluate if you need it else you can select them and delete.


To find large zipped attachments use this search option.
has:attachment (
.zip || .rar || *.7z )


To find large pdf / doc / xls / ppt / docx / pptx / xlsx attachments use this search option.
has:attachment (
.pdf || *.doc || *.docx || *.xls || *.xlsx || *.ppt || *.pptx )
Usually ppt / pptx are large culprits too.


P.S: After you delete the mail and attachment, it still remains in your GMail Trash folder. So go over to that folder and hit "Empty Trash". Now you can finally see some very good increase in the storage area of your Gmail account.


As for me, it went upto "You are currently using 6138 MB (82%) of your 7429 MB." which was a pretty good increase for me.

I have lost word and do not have the disk


If you only deleted the Icon, try start, run, type:  WINWORD on the run line, press <enter>  Word should open.  If that works, you can do a search for WINWORD.EXE once it appears in the search box, right click it, click SEND TO, Click DESKTOP and you'll have a new Icon.
If Word in uninstalled, and you do not have the installation media, you can try downloading OPEN OFFICE.  It is a free office suite that is compatible with most Office Documents
