Word: won't autosave - "file in use" (This is entirely unrelated to my earlier post about a Word problem). I'm writing in a Word doc as I've been doing for several days now. Today when I opened it up, after ten minutes (my autosave is set for ten minutes), it give me the following errors: You cannot save while the file is in use by another process. Try saving the file by another name. And then Saving Autorecovery is postponed. Obviously the Autosave is tryinbg to save to the write-locked doc. Yet I have no problem saving the doc manually. I would have thought closing the doc and the app and rebooting my computer would clear it but it's still happening. What process could start up from a reboot and be using my doc??
