How do I find version
Microsoft Office Technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 7 months ago

I guess you mean File Version or early versions of the file. It depends on your operating system. Is it Windows or macOS? Which version of it? Such as Windows 7, Windows 10, macOS 10.13 or OS X 10.11 etc.

it is a Windows word document I saw something that said Microsoft 2016. I had been working on this document in word. I kept periodically saving. Went to scroll to top and 3 pages were gone and I had still be saving. Help
Microsoft Office Technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 7 months ago

Thank for the information. "Microsoft 2016", I guess you are referring your Word 2016. I still need to know the Windows version, as the File History feature depends on your version of Windows.
