PPT2000: AutoRecovered Presentation Always in Normal View

ID: Q212497

The information in this article applies to:


When you start PowerPoint after it unexpectedly quits , the AutoRecovered presentation is always displayed in Normal (Tri-pane) view. This happens even if you were in Slide, Outline, Notes, or Slide Sorter view when PowerPoint closed.


This functionality is by design.


To turn on the AutoRecovery feature in PowerPoint, follow these steps:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.

  2. Click the Save tab.

  3. Click to select the Save AutoRecover Info check box.

  4. Adjust the number in the Minutes box to control how often PowerPoint saves the AutoRecover information.
