Opened document from email and edited not 'save as'

Q: Opened document from email and edited not 'save as'

I hope this is the correct place to ask. I have spent the day editing a document which i stupidly just opened from an email attachment in my hotmail account and proceeded to edit. I diligently saved it throughout the day but did not use the save as function.

I have tried to open a similar document and choose save as to see where the document would have saved but this does not seem to work in Windows 7. I have tried looking in my 'temp' folder but this is empty.

Does anyone know how else I could retrieve this document? It is the only version i have...i really ought to have looked after it better!

Thank you in advance,


Preferred Solution: Opened document from email and edited not 'save as'

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

No problem this is an easy one.

Go to search type in back up and restore Pick a date prior to your problem. And then like magic, everything is back the way it was when life was good. This will affect all your personal documents, but not system settings.

but first try this one. Go to search pick a phrase that is in your document and it should appear.

I would like to send an email that has a page automatically open with out the need to click a link.

IOW if a user receives an email open the email and the message automatically opens out whether it is a pdf or jpg.

Any thoughts?

A:How to get document to pop out as soon as an email is opened

I see this as a security risk, or possibly an attempt to bypass security measures by the email client or web mail... I'll let a mod decide, with that though.

But if I ever get an email that attempts to take control, it will probably be blocked and reported....

I opened a word 2010 document from an email in windows live mail desktop version and made some lengthy changes. Now I cannot find the document on my windows 7 system anywhere.

Please help


A:I cannot find a word document I opened as an email attachment

The file will be located in a folder somewhere in
C:\Users\(youraccount)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet

"\AppData" is normally hidden
"\Temporary Internet Files" is normally a hidden protected Operating System

You'll have to remove the checkmark (if they're hidden) in Windows Explorer:
Organize - Folder & Search Options - View

Good luck in finding it, though.

The correct way is to save the attachment first, then open it
from the saved location, if you wish to edit it.

I have Outlook 365 on my desktop for emails , calendars and contacts
I use Icloud for Windows to sync my Calendar and Contacts from iphone to desktop or from desktop to iphone.
Was seamless until a few days ago when trying to edit a contact on Outlook it would not allow me to save it
Error message was "Your changes cannot be saved because you don't have permission to modify some or all of the items in this folder. Do you want to save a copy of the item in the default
folder for the item?
I can edit the contact on iphone and it updates though to Outlook on desktop.
Calendar appointments (new and amended/edited) are seamlessly working both ways.
A new contact inputted onto Outlook icloud contact will save but if you then try to add a new number or note then get the above error message.
Please advise

I have Windows 7.
i copy entire flash drive to a folder (Call it "RemovableDrive" folder under My Document) from flash drive (USB).

In "RemovableDrive", folder, I right click and select Properties, then I uncheck READ ONLY, and select Apply to set all files and folder/subfolders to uncheck READ ONLY.

In the "RemovableDrive" folder, I opened a file, and edit it. Then I try to save it.
it would not let me. I also set the property of the file to READ ONLY, but still has the same problem.

What is the problem?
I have administrator privileges.

A:Copied flash to harddrive, and Cannot save edited file in folder.

What you did was to clear the Read Only attributes for this folder, sub folders and files. In FAT32 this is enough.

But in NTFS file system, you have to check the file permissions along with the ownership also for the folder.

To check the file permissions, right click on your flash folder in My Documents, select Properties - Security Tab.

Here under your username check the file permissions. Do you have full control?

Click on Advanced - Owner tab and press Edit button. Now select your username and put a check mark on Replace owner on subcontainers and objects and press OK button twice to return to the folder Properties dialog box.

Now click Advanced button, and make sure your username has full control permissions. If not click on Change Permissions and remove the tick mark on include inheritable permissions from this object's parent. Click Add button on the opened dialog box. Select your username and press Edit button. In the opened dialog box, put a check mark on Allow at full control, select Apply to this folder, sub folder and files. Keep another check mark on Apply permissons.... in the bottom of the screen and finally press OK button. Now close all the dialog boxes.

This should now allow you to edit any files in the folder.

My son has an ipad and an iphone. the iphone is not sycned to the ipad but a single email has been opened on the ipad that he has only accessed via his iphone. How can this happen?

A:one email looks opened when i ahve not opened it?

It sounds like you are using IMAP, which syncs the emails with the server, not the devices. So when one device shows up and is read there, the other will then show the same thing (being read). This is normal.

I opened a word document form a business associate it prompted me to enable something, and I stupidly agreed and then just got a blank screen.
Closed and deleted the doc and email. Wish I had kept it to see what the virus was.
Since then I frequently get this message when trying to open programs but not always.
"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc00000e5). Click OK to close the application."
If I click close then launch it again it always starts.
I suspect something bad on my machine but my virus and malwarebytes scans come up clean.

I sent myself a document through my email. I opened the file, didn't save it first but just opened it in MS Word 2010, as an RTF document. I then clicked on enable editing. When I finished working on it I clicked on the Save button on the toolbar. I forgot to Save As the file and put it in a proper folder. I am using my laptop and was in automode and thought I was just saving it as usual on my desktop. So now I can't find this document anywhere. It doesn't even show up in Recent Documents. I tried opening the unedited file from my email again it it says it's in my documents/myname/localsettings/tempinternet files. I went into my computer went into the temp folder but the file isn't in there. I'm really confused. If you save a file after working on it shouldn't it be somewhere?

Hello Bleeping Computer. I have used this forum before to fix issues with my computer, and for the issue i have today, i haven't been able to find an existing solution.
I tried to open my essay file today but when i tried, i get the message

"We're sorry. We can't open JALE1014 Drugs and Crime essay.docx because we found a problem with its contents".
Details: The file is corrupt and cannot be opened.

I then try to use the Word recovery of my file, but this is what happens

"We're sorry. We can't open JALE1014 Drugs and Crime essay.docx because we found a problem with its contents".
Details: Microsoft Office cannot open this file because some parts are missing or invalid.

I tried every single fix that i was able to find, and to name them, they are:
Opening the file on another computer. Didn't work
Changing the file extension from docx to zip. Wasn't able to open it.
Changing the file extension to rtf. Wasn't able to open it.
I tried to find previous versions of the file in my autosaves folder in Appdata\roaming\microsoft but didn't find one.

From time to time, when I open a Word document, it is opened read only. I have no idea why this happens. It is fairly infrequent (3-4 times a month) and seems random.
The problem is that I don't notice that it's read only, so I go about merrily on editing the document. When I try to save it, I get the Save As dialog. In  then have to save it under a different name, delete the old copy, and rename the new one. In addition to a royal pain, it screws up my archive log.
Is there a way that I can have Word warn me whenever a document is opened read only?

A:Can I get Word 2007 to warn me when a document is opened read only?

I did a little more research and found this website:

It has a document_open macro which I adapted as follows:

Sub Document_Open()
If ThisDocument.ReadOnly = False Then Exit Sub
MsgBox "This document is read only."
End Sub

I saved it in a Normal code module and set a breakpoint. It does get executed every time a document is opened, but the readonly test is always False, even when the document has the Read Only flag set and the title bar clearly says "(Read Only)".
Is there a way to modify this macro so that the MsgBox statement will execute when a document is opened read only?

Hi guys, I just started my first job last week and my boss has a problem which noone in the office has been able to solve, if I can solve it, I would undoubtedly make a very good impression, no?

Now, he has w2k installed on his laptop (formatted NTFS), with a network share (also NTFS) on a 2000 or NT4 server - I'm not sure which. When he opens an Excel document that is saved on the share, Excel opens but the screen stays white and he has to end the process. When he opens the file again it works just fine and the document opens.

They first tried reinstalling Excel, then Office, and then they formatted the drive and reinstalled Windows, so it can't be the software or the OS on his machine.

If anyone has come across this or a similar problem, or has ANY ideas, please let me know, it would be so much fun if the new blonde girl can show 'em all

Was Office loaded on that machine at work?
If so it is my guess that one of two things is happening.

1) The Office dll that displays pictures is resident on the work network and is only loaded when it is needed - thus displaying that message.

2) A similar thing with the document that just the link (and thumbnail) to the pictures were included in the document. The actual pictures are still on the network.

I'm using XP Home SP2 and Word 2002 (screen says "Microsoft Office XP" when it opens, hope that makes sense!)

Something is all backwards in prompting me to Save Changes. First of all, I usually never see the prompt.
I opened some documents - only to read them. I did not change anything at all. When I closed, some of the docs (but not all of them), there was a box asking if I wanted to Save The Changes I made to This Document? I said No because I didn't make any changes. I want it to stop doing this. Also, it only asked that for some of the docs. For other docs (also unchanged), it didn't ask.

I've never seen this box before, usually even if I've made a million changes, I'm never prompted to save the changes or not.

I would like to have this confirmation box come up when I DO make changes! Very handy! But not have it come up when I don't make changes. Very annoying!
It seems to be all backwards, asking to keep changes when I don't make any, but never asking to keep changes when I DO make them! So basically I want things the other way around.
Is it possible?

A:when I save an MS word document it disappears

I'd like to clarify a few things.

When you "save the document", are you transferring it from a flash drive to the My Documents folder on the main drive?


Have you opened the document and then saving it to "My Documents" on the main drive?


Is the "My Documents" folder one a folder on the "Kingston stick"?

Or are you doing something else?

My boss has a special network folder mapped only to his PC. He keeps a lot of xls and doc files that are for his eyes only. One of the xls files refuses to save, the error message states that the "file is currently in use". No one else has it open, or even has access to it's saved location.

He can still save a copy with "Save As.." but he can't even manually delete the original file afterwards.

I'm thinking it might be a hung process, but I wanted to see if someone here has a solution/explanation. I'm going over to mess with it now, and will check back later to update.

Hi, I think many has this problem as I found it in other forums without clear response. Sometimes my Internet Explorer 9 does not like Adobe Reader 9. So I open a document pdf which has no security issue, and I just click on the save a copy icon. The icon responds with a virtual click. And that's it. Does not appear the radiobox where I can chose where and how to save. Nothing happens. And I can't find the downloaded pdf in any temporary folders either (I can index system folders and do a search there). So I have to go to another computer where I do the same in Firefox and it works, I can save the pdf file. But this is not OK that I have to use someone else's computer. I just wonder why these intelligent guys who create IE and AR can not make something that works? And since years this problem has been existing. Any idea how to patch it? Cheers and happy new year !

A:Save a copy of a PDF document open in IE9 does not do anything

In IE9, enable the classic menu-bar which is disabled by default.

Now when you open a PDF in IE9 via the Adobe Reader plugin, just click File >> Save as. It will save it as a PDF file with a default filename.

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but how do I save 7 pages of a magazine story which I scanned so they appear under just one icon in a folder? (instead of 7 icons)

A:How to save several pages under one document icon

If you've scanned them they'll be images, which are necessarily one file per image, which means one file per page. What you'll have to do is build them into some other document--for example a Microsoft Word file or a PDF file. That way you open the document (with Word, Adobe Reader, etc) and get the pages one after another in the order you set up. After you've made the document you can delete the original scans.

I'm hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction with what appears to be a problem with Word.

I have a Lotus Notes application that stores a lot of information, and part of that is output to a word document for printing. A user opens a document in Lotus Notes, presses a button and a Word document is created with the relevant information in it. It does this by getting Notes to launch a Word template file with the layout how we want it, and passing an XML file with all the required values from Notes so that a VBA function in the Word template can read this information in. It's quite a convoluted way of doing things I'll agree, but I am just working with a a system that was developed a long time ago and in most cases it works well.

When the user is done making any changes to the Word document, there is a macro button in Word that they press to mark the document complete. This makes the document readonly, sets a few custom properties and then saves the document.

In most cases, if you were to run through the process, everything works fine. Sometimes however, a small number of users are finding that their work isn't saved. If for example they launch a new word document, make changes and then close word, then go back to that document and make more changes before pressing the Complete button in Word, they find that the next time they go to the document it's in the state before their most recent changes, which are lost.
