    Angry Prevent Save as dialogue box from appearing in Word

    Hi all

    I have a really big Word 2013 document and I frequently save the typing progress (just in case it happens to crash).
    Here’s what I simply cannot work out and am hoping someone can shed some light on. When I give the command to save (only save), Word not only save’s the document as expected; but for some reason brings up the ‘save as’ dialogue box as well. This only began happening for the last 7 days, half the time Word behaves and does a straight save without showing the dialogue box.
    Does anyone know how to prevent the save as dialogue box from appearing?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you press Ctrl+S and see if that helps?

    Hi all

    I didn't mention in my initial post that this is a recovered document (as it has crashed in the past), the solution was to simply remove the word 'Recovered' from the file title.
