Windows Live Writer 2011 - set SAVE Interval

ua5am25hIn the previous version of Windows Live Writer you could set the save interval so that you could decide how often Windows Live Writer would’ve your current post as a  draft; and by default the new Windows Live Writer [2011] saves the post every 2 minutes.

But there are others who would prefer for this not to happen so frequent, or would like to do this every minute— cause you can only do this by minute.

So with the new version, they changed up the GUI and removed options to some settings, but they weren’t removed from the registry.

So, break out the registry editor…


This is my registry disclaimer: Mucking with the registry is touchy stuff; no life guard on duty here. You muck it up, it’s your business- I claim no responsibility in your inability to work with the registry properly, in any way, inferred, shape or form. Proceed carefully.





Choose START button, choose RUN…

Enter REGEDT32 ..

Go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Writer\Preferences\PostEditor

Look for…


Change the AUTOSAVEMINUTES to something other than 2… which is the default.

Make your change, and then exit the registry.


I hope this helps…


Thank you,
