    I opended a file that was emailed to me. I made changes to the file. I
    then hit the save button in word. NOT SAVE AS. I then exited out of word.
    I can find the file but not my changes I made to it on my computer. is it
    lost?

  2. You should never edit a document that has been opened inside
    an email program. Always save the attachment first, then open
    the saved file. The file you saved is somewhere in a 'temp' location,
    with a long gibberish name. It would be like looking for a needle
    in a haystack.
