If you run into this error you might need to check this error first:
Word is unable to save the AutoRecover file in the location you have specified.

Word is unable to save the AutoRecover file in the location you have specified.

Word is unable to save the AutoRecover file in the location you have specified.  Make sure that you have specified a valid location for AutoRecover files in Preferences, and that you have permission to write files to the location you specified.

If you get into this error massage check if there is any location set for the autorecovery files (I had it empty), and change it or set one:

  1. Go to: Word > Preferences (or press ⌘,) > Personal Settings > File Locations.
  2. Either double click on “Autorecover files” or single click and then click on “Modify”.
  3. Pick a folder and then hit “Open” I have it in Documents > Microsoft > Office 2011 Autorecovery.

Avoid folders where Word app can get into trouble with file permission (changing or saving). Also, if you use Desktop or other folder that is synchronized with iCloud, be aware that large documents need more time to upload. A small internet connection might block word access for quite a long time and this message can become quite frustrated.

How to change US (inches) to Metric (cm) in Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)

If you are using metric system and if you are more comfortable with cm, mm instead of inches then you might need to change this setting when you work with images in Office documents or presentations.

2. Click on “Additional Settings

And that should be all. Select again your image in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and you will get the size values in Metric units.

Firefox window turned full white, glitches or not responding.

With my new PC, Firefox is crashing very often. I’m finding myself in front of a not responding browser or just a fully white window. In some cases the web-page elements became full black or there are some graphical glitches (in text, images and videos). The solution was to minimize/maximize and wait for some time, change the focus to other app, move one tab to a new window or simply scroll up or down. This solutions sometimes work, but most of the time they doesn’t and I need to open task manager and end Firefox. I have the latest Firefox version (51.0.1) and latest graphic drivers.


Well … the the actual solution to this problem is quite simple. You just need to disable “Disable Hardware Acceleration“.

1. Go to “Menu” -> “Options

2. Go to “Advanced” and disable “Use hardware acceleration when available“.

And that’s all. Hope it helps!
