i was writing a paper on this. I've been working on it for well over 5 hours now. I hit the save button at the top of the screen several times cause I was scared of losing progress. After hitting the save button repeatedly, I tried to add a header, opted not to, and decided to exit the document. As I was, it asked "discard changes?" Or "save?" I hit discard because i HAD ALREADY SAVED SEVERAL TIMES. I reopen the doc and everything is gone. The last 3 hours of work, erased. I checked history.

It's a mixed bag. I am an old word user (over 20 years) and it's had its ups and downs. Word for my PC, is a solid 5 BUT Word for my tablet and phone that's another matter. The android version is not easy to use. It's not intuitive. The menues need a good going over. For my android word processing I use Office Suite. I thought MS could do better but after seeing Windows 11 I'm not so sure anymore. Bill we need you back.

Microsoft Word is great, but the One Drive software entanglement is cumbersome. I have lost hours of productivity trying to accomplish basic tasks, such as download Word only, to a desktop-without having to open Office. I do not want to look at all their products at once, and prefer a direct access. The Office software package provides useful programs, but is bizarre to navigate. I hope Microsoft will declutter their constellation of products for a more navigable experience.
