To help you manage these tasks and maintain security, Word has commands you can use to restrict access to a document.

Managing document versions

Managing Document Versions

  • Document versions can be managed in Backstage using the Info command and selecting which version to save.

  • In the Recent command in Backstage, there is an option to Recover Unsaved Document and your work is saved in intervals.

  • You will be able to recover versions of your document as long as you haven’t closed your document or program.

  • Also, if Word stops working for some reason, then it will be recovered, but you will not be able to see your previous versions until the document is saved.

  • Under Manage Versions, you can also browse for unsaved files.

  • In the following exercise, you will manage a document’s version with an existing file, a new file, and recover an unsaved version.


Restoring an earlier version of your document

Restoring an Earlier Version of Your Document

  • It is a good idea to practice inspecting the document before sharing a copy such as an email attachment.

Checking accessibility

Checking Accessibility

  • The Accessibility Checker determines if there are potential errors in your document and will alert you that the content may be difficult for an individual with a disability to read. Accessibility is defined as being accessible to those with disabilities.

  • Before sharing your document, it is important to inspect your document in case someone with a disability will be opening the document.

  • In the following exercise, you learn to check if there are errors in your document.


Checking compatibility

Checking Compatibility

  • Before sharing documents, it is good practice to check whether the document is error free and the formatting appears professional.

  • Word’s Compatibility Check will ensure that a document’s features are compatible with other versions of Word.

  • The Compatibility Checker searches a document for features that are not supported by earlier versions of Word and lists a summary of these features.

  • In the following exercise, you learn to check for issues in a document.
