Have you ever opened up a Word doc only to get a message that the file is corrupt? Here's how to recover it pretty easily.

Go to the file you want to open. At the bottom where it says "Open", hit the drop down arrow and choose "Open and Repair".

That should open the corrupt document. If that doesn't work, try this method. Go to the document you want to open and then go to "Files of Type" at the bottom and scroll down to choose "Recover Text from Any File".

You might lose some of the formatting this way but it's a lot better to reformat than to retype all over again.
