In former versions of ArcMap, when exiting the software asks if user wants to save before exiting, this version doesn't do that. How do I set this option? I have had to exit the program and my changes aren't saved. thanks..
Mapping Center Answer:
It sounds like you somehow overwrote your normal template with a new normal template in which this setting was set to not ask if you want to save. Try renaming your normal.mxt file to something else, restarting ArcMap to crate a new map document, and then exiting again to see if this time ArcMap asks if you want to save your document. If this works, then what you have essentially does is renamed the normal.mxt that got "corrupted" and created a new Normal.mxt with the default settings.
The Normal.mxt is located by default in this folder, where XXXX is your login to your computer: C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX\Application Data\ESRI\ArcMap\Templates.
If this does not work, then try contacting ESRI Tech Support as I know they have at least one more solution to suggest for this type of situation.
