Hi there and welcome

No it is not yet on your computer, but try this

hold the power button down on the computer until the computer turns on to simulate a "crash" (it will not hurt the computer)

Than start the computer and open Word

It "may" recover the document. If it does not, than it is lost sorry

Let me know if you have any difficulties please
