Windows Live writer trick – Auto save your posts


When I was writing this post on Multi client IM using windows Live writer ,their was a sudden power cut which resulted in loss of the whole content and sadly I had to rewrite it again.This is not the first time I have lost content,I try to keep articles saving to the local draft.But I figured out that windows live writer had an auto saving post option which saves each post automatically.

windows_live_writer

If you are using Windows live writer to post on your wordpress blog then you can enable  the auto save post option/trick by following this steps :

Open your Windows Live writer

Go to tools

Click on options

A dialog box appears which looks like this

windows_live_writer 

Just check the Automatically save drafts every _ minute,you can write any number in the box.I have set mine to 3 minutes which means I don’t have to save my post manually,Live writer will automatically save my post to the local draft after every 3 minutes.Click OK and you are done!

    I prefer writing my posts with HTML so no extra formatting occurs.
