Hi guys,
Just recently my version of WORD has started to add a copy of a file that I have just worked on (as well as the copy that I manually save) usually prefixed with ~$.
I think that I must have clicked something somewhere,,,,,
What is happening,,,, how did I start this,,,How do I stop it please ?
many thanks

Look in Tools - Options - Save. See if there's a tick in "Always create a backup copy". I thought, however that the $ prefix was for a document that was in progress so that it could be recovered after a crash. I notice on my pc that there's a tick for "Save AutoRecover every: 10 minutes", this is probably the source of the $ files I'm familiar with.

Thanks again gongoozler,
mine was also ticked at "save every 10,,,," so I un ticked it.
I'll click 'resolved' as it seems to suggest my 'prob',,,,
all the best
