You might want to check the saving options you have by hitting alt+f, then t, and arrow down to saving and tab through there.

I’m not sure what would cause your issue, I always get prompted to save my changes.

I am using Jaws 18 with Windows 10 and Office 365.

Until relatively recently, when closing a document in MS Word with alt f4 or control f4, if I’d made changes, I would be asked if I wanted to save the changes before closing. But now it just closes and saves.

Today this was a real nuisance as I’d slightly customised my Christmas letter for an individual, but I hadn’t intended this to change the original letter which still needs to go out to some people. When I closed it though, it didn’t ask if I wanted to save the changes – it just did so!

How in future can I prevent this from happening?

quickly and efficiently without accessing a dedicated computer or software.


No Additional Software Is Required


Webmail doesn’t require the installation of dedicated
software. Simply open your web browser, go to Gmail, and your messages will be


Access Your Email Using Familiar JAWS and Web Page Navigation Commands


Since Google’s webmail is displayed in your web browser, you
can use JAWS Quick Nav keys and other navigation keystrokes when working with
messages. These familiar commands make learning easier.
