Word won't save or open files

Q: Word won't save or open files

Says I can't open document because 'word has insufficient memory' -- I'm assuming this is related to the 62% resources free on bootup...should be 80 if i remember (this is win98) -- any ideas other than that as to why it won't save/open?

and if you agree its the resources problem - how to fix? This is my cousin's old machine...IBM Aptiva...i think it's a duron, only 64mb dedicated system memory...88 included onboard vram.

Preferred Solution: Word won't save or open files

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.)

A: Word won't save or open files

I got system resources free up to 88% but it still won't open documents. If I open a document straight from my documents, it will open. But the 'open' command won't work in Word. I can't use the 'save' or 'save as' command.

I can open recent files though in the 'file' menu. Any ideas? Seems really weird.

Also, appears to be true in all Microsoft applications, not just Word.

Hi guys,

I have a question that has stumped me so far. Here is the scenario: I am dealing with a spreadsheet that has several tabs on it. In each tab, there are several word, powerpoint, and pdf documents that are embedded as objects. My task is to write a macro, that will for each document (keep in mind its an embedded object that needs to be opened), open it with the appropriate program, and save it using a pre-assigned name (the name of the column heading and the row it is in) to a predetermined folder path. This process needs to be duplicated about 200 times. I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I know enough about vba to believe that it is. I've been working on it since yesterday, and I can't seem to tie the pieces together. Can anyone help on this?

Thanks!

When I used Word 2003 I could create files & save them to my phone.

Now that I'm using Word 2007, it wont let me save files to the phone, though I can open files CREATED on the phone.

What am I doing wrong?

Not sure what happened. The Visio files were opening just fine a few minutes ago, and now when I try to open them, IE prompts me continuously for "Open, Save, Save as." I tried all three options for the fun of it and IE still prompts every time.
Tried opening them from a remote PC and they open just fine. Can't do anything with them on my PC except view them in Visio itself.
I've tried resetting IE settings. Uninstalling IE 11 and going down to 10. Nothing in event viewer for IE. 



Any ideas?

Hi All,

I work on a web application that has Excel and Word documents in it.

At the moment when a user opens these documents in IE9 they get presented with a dialog box asking:

What do you want to do with "filename"?

The user is presented with Open, Save and Save As as the options.

Unlike previous versions of IE there is no check box to tick to remember the user's choice so it comes up every time.

I really need to get rid to this box. Does anyone know how to disable it?

Thanks

Do you mean on a network that a word opens in read view versus print view? If so in word go Tools>Options>uncheck "Allow starting in reading..."(see attached). Hope that's what you meant.

When I click save as in the file menu or even just click save for the first time in a new document nothing happens. No save as box, no error messages, nothing. However if I close the program I get the do you wish to save changes box and then the save as window opens. Is there anyway I can get it to just save normally. As i'm sure you can imagine its a real pain to have to quit word whenever I want to save something, not to mention the fact that i'm taking a crap shoot as to wether it will actually save my document or force me to lose everything.

This should be done with Internet Explorer open (even if you are having problems with it), not Firefox / Chrome or another browser.

Click Tools or the Gear icon at the top of the browser > Go down the list to click on Internet Options > Go across to the last tab that should be Advanced >  Click on Advanced and then Reset (near the bottom) > You should get a Confirm box pop up > Tick Delete Personal Settings and now Reset.
This last part may be where the infection changed things -
 
While there > Go back to Connections Tab, and down to LAN Settings. Open this and check that the only box ticked is Automatically Detect Settings, and untick any others. Click OK >Apply if you changed anything and OK again.
 
Back to the General Tab and make sure your Home Page is entered correctly in the box. Re-set it if not, clock Apply and OK to close out
Once the settings have all been reset, Close that box. Close any other open boxes. Now close I.E. and Reboot your computer.

Hi!
I am new to this forum, but recent difficulties have driven me here.
For some reason, whenever I go to save a document in Microsoft word, the "save as" box will pop up as usual, but where it would normally show my the contents of my documents folder there is absolutely nothing! Just blank space! And it will give me the "busy" cursor like its trying to load, but it never will and if I click anything it just goes to "not Responding" and I have to close it! This also happens if I try to open a file. Not just with word either, its all of my programs.

So basically, it is crashing whenever a program tries to access "my documents," which is usually the standard folder that opens whenever you go to "save as" etc.

This used to happen online too, but now that works for some reason but it still doesnt work offline. I thought installing "vista service pack" would help so I did that this morning but its still crashing.

If anyone knows any way I can fix this it would be much appreciated.

Hi,
 
I have a problem with the "Always ask before opening this type of file" function in Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 8.1.
The problem is; when the Citrix receiver from Windows store is configured to open ICA files and we log into a webinterface or storefront server in IE, users  is prompted to either Open, Save or Cancel the ica file. I am not able to uncheck
the "Always ask before opening this type of file" after downloading the file. I can do thios on other file types like 7z Files. For me it seems like Windows have a whitelist of safe files, and .ica is not one of them.

Hello. I recently switched to Word 2013. It's taking some getting used to.
 
In prior versions of Word when I would "save as" or "open" I would get a folder list. If it were the first time since I had opened the program it would be my default setting: in my case, "My Documents." If I had opened a document and tried to "save as" it would show the most recent folder I had opened.
 
In Word 2013 instead of a folder list I get a list of recent documents. I also get a choice of Recent Documents, One Drive, Computer and Add a Place. This requires that I go through extra clicks to get to the proper folder. Is there a way to switch to a folder view?
 
By the way, what is this One Drive business?
 
Do I need to Add a Place each time I open a folder?
 
Thank you.

A:Word 2013 Issues: Open File; Save As; One Drive, etc.

You can select a default folder to save to, or set the default to Computer, and then navigate to the folder you want to save to -- File>Options>Save, check Save to Computer by default. You can select your default folder here as well.
When Saving As, you should be seeing a list of recent folders you've saved to, to the right of the OneDrive and Computer options.
 
If you have an outlook.com, live.com or hotmail.com email address, you can download the OneDrive application to your desktop and use it to save and sync files and folders to storage in the cloud. If you don't have email accounts with any of those, you can ignore the OneDrive option.

Hello Everyone,

I'd like to write a .bat file that will save and close all open Word documents, then quit Word or terminate the Word process.

Also, could the .bat file be triggered only after Word has been unused/idle for a specified time?

I look forward to your responses!

Hi,

Killing the word process wouldn't be too difficult but that would be on a schedule rather than x amount of idle minutes.

Are you able to provide some background on why this is needed and maybe there is an alternate method?

Friend is having 2 relatively minor problems with his 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium laptop.

The second:
He uses a flash drive to copy Word files from a Windows XP PC to his Windows 7 laptop. I created a one line bat file for him to copy all the .doc files from his document folder to a thumb drive.

We noticed that not all the document files were being copied. Of about 40 new files, only about 32 made it to the flash drive. When I tried to individually copy/paste files I get a msg (on the 'paste' end of it) that I
Cannot copy (whatever).doc. The directory or the file cannot be created.

So I brought up the original document, and did a Save As to the thumb drive. There I got the msg
Word cannot save or create this file. Make sure that the disk you want to save the file on is not full, write protected, or damaged.

The flash drive is about 1% full, does not seem to be damaged, and allowed me to copy 30-some of the Word files that have been created since 01//06/12, just not all of them.

Any of the documents already on the flash drive can easily be re-copied from the documents folder on the C: drive. It asks if I want to replace the file, I say yes and I get no error.

Any ideas? The Windows XP PC is runing Word 2003, while the Win 7 laptop is running Word 2007 if that makes any difference (I don't know why it should).

It may not even be possible. Specifically, I create weekly lesson plans and want to save them in order by week,month, year. This would make it much easier to search for a specific lesson plan.

Spyware is a larger threat than virus's these days. Does his checker also check for spyware? Running a software firewall?

Is your husbands account a power users or administrator? You can check this with the user console in control panel.

If you logon as him and go to My Documents, right mouse click in the right pane and choose "New" then select new microsoft word doc. Can you save it?

Note that I have fixed this before by deleting a strange file labelled "i" that was in my System32 folder, but it has reappeared and simply comes back every time I delete it. Other strange things in my System32 folder are files called "eraseme_XXXXXX" with XXXXXX replaced by seemingly random numbers. Thank you in advance.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this problem. I have a new Dell laptop and I use Mozilla Thunderbird for email. I had the same setup on my last Dell laptop and didn't have this issue.

The issue:
I receive .tif ftp links in my email (essentially faxes from our server that I need to view). I use to be able to open or save once I clicked on the link. Usually, I would just open. However now, open isn't an option at all and save only works if I have deleted the .tif file type from my computer (open my computer, click on tools and then folder options, click on file types tab - then remove .tif and .tiff). Once I save a file and then open it from my desktop, the .tif file type is put back into my computer folder options and I have to go through the above process all over again to view another one. If I don't remove the .tif file types then as soon as I click on the .tif link it automatically saves in some temporary file that I have yet been able to find. I've searched for the document name and nothing ever comes up.

What do I need to do in order to be able to open the .tif links immediately without going through the process above?

Your suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks

Found similar problem described for Quattrro Pro 8 at Corel site. However solution that was described there about moving/and executing a PREG.exe file did not seem to translate to Office2000.
 

A:cannot get quattro pro 9 to open or save files

I have not tested this however you may be able to use OpenOffice to open the database http://www.openoffice.org/

I have recently noticed (I know it didn't used to be this way) in any of my programs, when I click on File>Open or try to save into a list of folders, they are not in alphabetical order. I have to search through the entire list of folders to find the one I am looking for. There is usually a semblance of order in that some seem to be in order, but many are not and this usually seems to be the ones I am looking for. Is there a setting that might have been changed to cause this?

Thanks
Peg

I have Windows XP. When I download a file (WP, pdf, etc.), and it asks me to open or save it, it will only let me save it. If I try to open it, it seems to download, but then the relevant application never opens, and I get a message that I may not have the appropriate permission. So I have to save it, then open the application myself, then open the saved file. Any ideas on what the problem is? Thanks for any assistance!!

When I try to open or download file through the run or save button the file will start to download and goes to 99% and stops. And if I try to rerun it it stops at 0%. Some email attachments will open but most will not. like pdf, doc, exe, powerpoint, ect. Although windows update will run, download and install. If its a virus problem I can't download a program it does the same thing. And once again if its a registry problem I can't download to fix it. It acts like some kind of firewall block but I have all the default settings in Internet explorer 8. Help!!

I can't open .doc files anymore or .docm either, I just get a window for Save As. I loaded a compatibility program recommended by the college for their program, and I suspect it may be the root of the problem, but when I removed this program, the problem still persists. I need to open these files. I have Word Perfect 10, and Office Access, but I still have been able to open these files previously.
Thanks.

A:Can't open .doc files anymore, get Save As

Hello Pixie7

Try this easier way first

Right click a problem file
Hover over Open with
If the program you need is not shown click "Choose Program"
Highlight the program in the list
At the bottom check "Always use this program...."
OK

If the program to open the file is not in the list, click the "Browse" button.
Find the ".exe" for the program and select it
Continue then as above.

After virus removal IE not able to open save or open files from the web.
 
- I have ran malwarebytes, awdcleaner, comboxfix, and tdsskiller.
- I have check settings in IE to make sure downloading was enabled
- all other browser work fine ... chrome, firefox
- I have taken IE off the machine by turning off IE in windows services via uninstall programs, rebooted and ran ccleaner, then re-enabled IE...still cannot download and save files
- I have rest IE...still same issue.
 
The only thing other thing I have found online regarding this is that IE may have lost it admin rights or something like that. have any of you ran across this issue before?

Hello
I work as part of a IT team within a organization that has 200+ Windows 8.1 devices, recently we have been experiencing a problem when downloading files using Internet Explorer 11.
You click the file to download (word document,PDF etc) and you get the yellow bar at the bottom asking you to open save etc but when you select any of the options nothing happens and this is becoming increasingly more common.
I cant believe we are the only people to have this issue but i have searched and cant find any answers.
I hope somebody can help us.
Thanks,

A:Downloading Files When Clicking Open or Save Nothing Happens

Hi Bristow2013,
What is the download link, could you please share it and allow me to have a test?
The download option works at my side(Checked with downloading applications),  please take a look at the
View Downloads under Tools at the right-up corner of Internet Explorer, or tap
Ctrl + J, check and see if the downloads is available there.
Further, also check the add-ons in Internet Explorer, more information, please see:
Download files from the web

I recently installed Windows Vista Home Premium software on my laptop. It was working fine until recently. The problem is that whenever I try to save or save as in Firefox, Word, and other programs the window pops up but never loads and when I click on it it says (Not Responding). The only program in which I can save something is Internet Explorer 7 which I rarely use. It also does this same thing when I try to browse and open a file. PLEASE help!
