How to Recover Lost Word files - Part 3

In this article we explain how to reopen and repair a Word file that may have been damaged when it crashed. 

Using Task Manager to close Word after it Crashes

When Word crashes, the Winword.exe file may still remain open. You need to close this before you re-open Word as otherwise system conflicts may arise, i.e. you may not be able to open Word, as the system sees that Winword.exe is currently running.

To close Winword.exe using the Task Manager, follow these steps:

1. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL.

In the Windows Security dialog box, click Task Manager.

2. On the Processes tab, click any instance of Winword.exe, and then click End Process.

3. Close the Windows Task Manager, and then re-start Word.
