If you work with several Microsoft Word documents simultaneously, switching to each one of them to save them could be both a pain as well as time consuming. However, there is an alternative.
You can enable a Save All button which when clicked will save all the open documents. Here are the steps:
- Click on the Office button and select ‘Word Options’.
- In the left side options choose ‘Customize’.
- In the ‘Choose commands from:’ dropdown box, select ‘Commands Not in the Ribbon’.
- In the list below, locate Save All and then click on the Add button followed by OK.
A Save All shortcut will now be placed in the small Quick Access toolbar to the right of the Office button.
For some reason the Save All option is not available for Excel 2007. I don’t about Excel 2010 as I don’t have it.
