When i have saved Word documents into a folder there is another document alongside with the same name but also a '$' sign in front. The files are "ghosted" or greyed out.Can anyone explain please? Should I delete them?
Thanks

As Easterner has said they are temp word files. They are created when you open a word doc and should disappear when the doc is closed. you will only see these files if you have enabled view hidden files and folders.
