Windows 10: revising an existing document and saving the revisions Solved

    revising an existing document and saving the revisions

    Often I bring to the screen a windows 10 existing document for rereading and revision. After I've made the revisions, I click save. On my former windows system, that would save the corrections. On windows 10, this often leads to "Save as". I have to write in the title of the document, say where I want it saved again, then click on save. The next message is that that document exists; do I want this document to replace existing document. I click okay. Then the next message often is that it can't be saved , but will be repaired next time I log in. I click on "okay". When I log in again, the revisions are not saved. I have many glitches with the windows 10, and I'm slowly dealing with them. I can't seem to solve this one. How do I work on an existing document and save changes or additions I've made.

    Please specify what kind of 'Windows 10 document' are you talking about, an Office document, txt pdf ? You should, on a R-click have a 'Save' and a 'Save as' dialog.

    My reply disappeared - not sure if it was posted. I'm working on an office document and I do have "save" and "save as" options. If I click "save" I get the window marked "save" at the top, but I have to fill in the title and where to save it again. Then I get "This document already exists; do you want to replace the existing document?", then the message that they have to repair it but that will be done when I open the document again. The revisions are not saved when I open it.

    Here is what I always do.......................

    Let's say I am revising document A.
    I finish the revision > right click at the revised document > click Save As > navigate to the folder where document A is > click document A > The title will be automatically entered into File Name box. I do not have to retype the title > then I'll click Save.
    I will be told that there is already a file of that name and if I want to replace it > I'll click Yes.
    That's it.

    I don't know about the Repair part. It never happens to me.
