Okay, so I played a trick on my gf tonight and told her to Alt-F4 out of a paper she was writing cuz I told her it was the "save" key, and she did, and now the document wont open back up... As it turns out, this is the paper she has been writing for the past two years on a research project for college...please help me...

i'm pretty sure it was only in RAM, and unless you have windows auto save every minute, you ain't getting that back.

If shes been working on it for 2 years, she abviously had it saved previously. Just tell her to start what she did tonight over.

You should only pull the Alt-F4 or Ctrl-Alt-Del trick when it is not important, like a game or something. That is what 6th grade taught me, anyway.

no, but it makes sense for the situation. i remember after school in middle school (we had an Extended Day Program- do homework, then play) in which we would be in this teachers room and on the internet playing games and practically attacking eachother trying to press alt+f4.

The situation you scoped is not even close to a large paper. Your situation is a bunch of kids... acting like kids. A quasi-mature relationship should not end in the same way you would end a non-responive program.

ya, i'm just saying they're two different situations which end in two different ways. they were kicked out of the classroom, he will be kicked out of the house. but he can plead man slaughter instead of murder and maybe find an auto recover file.

Allrighty than, enjoy your 6th grade classroom. Playtime is now over for me.

And don't tell me that Alt-F4 will spell-check my paper.
