Default Autosave toggle missing

Hello All,




since I have started to work with online documents, I have found very convenient the auto-save button.


I have moved to a different machine with windows 10 and I have installed onedrive. When I select a word document to be opened with word app, on the top left, the auto-save toggle is missing.
Looking on hte net there are different opinions.


Any quick solution?
Thank you so much.

That is part of the QAT. It may have been removed in the installation with the problem.

Try modifying the QAT.

For AutoSave to be available, you must be running a subscription version (Microsoft 365) and the document must be saved to OneDrive.

good morning and thank you both.


File is saved on OneDrive and is an Institutional Microsoft Office


this is the file at home












I'll double-check the version at work, but I am confident is the same


Update: this is the version I got at work

That is Office 2016 which is not the same as 365.
