Edel it is definitely gone then but a word of comfort.  We have all been there 
and I think I can confidently say that at one time or another we have all been 
so dreadfully upset at loosing very important documents.  It is a very hard 
lesson indeed to learn but one we all have to.  I was once doing an exam years 
ago when I did not know much about computers and lost half the exam and under 
pressure had to start it all over again. There have been other times too and 
other important documents down the drain.  Everyone has their own story on that

  Hi Petrina and Eleanor

  No I think its definitely lost and I hadn't named it.  You see I went into 
the slide master and when I was finished nosing around in there I closed what I 
thought was the the slide master but it was in fact the whole document and it 
never even asked me did I want to save it.  (boohoo).

  I guess I'll just start again.  Thanks for your help and advice.  I think 
I'll go have some pizza.

    Edel if you did not save it then it is gone. However, if you even saved it 
once maybe it is somewhere.  I'm not good at telling people how to use the 
keyboard but from Start cursor up to search and press enter.  In the edit box 
put in the name of your document and then tab around until you hear search and 
press enter.  See what happens, maybe it will show up.  The search will look 
through all documents on your computer with tht name and if it finds it, it 
will tell you the path name and where it is.  Give it a go in any case.

      Hello all

      This evening with enthusiasm now that the assignments are handed in and 
the exam is completed I set about creating a PowerPoint presentation with my 
newly installed software and the help of Petrina's instructions.  I was real 
proud of myself creating my presentation and guess what, I lost it.  Yes I hear 
you all scream, I didn't save as I was going along.  

      Is there any way it can be retrieved.  I am nearly crying here as I had 
created about ten slides.  Oh I'm so stup'd.
