I don't pretend to be more than caveperson level with Word, but is it
possible that the file is being saved (or Saved As) and the modified file
is being saved in your Documents? If this isn't possible, is this a domain
computer and possibly set to not allow changes on the Desktop (WAG here).
See what happens if you Save As to your Documents instead of to the Desktop
and then make a shortcut to the file on your Desktop. These are just
speculations because I've not ever seen this sort of thing happen all by
