How do I open a document from Mission control? Am I even using the right language? I have an imac running OS 10.7.5. I don't have a track pad. I've googled the hell out of this and our IT people are not picking up the phone. HELP!!

I have an open Word document that I worked on before people came to my office to annoy the shit out of me. It flew off the top of my screen as I was working on other documents. Through googling I see it in Mission control. But I can't get it to open. I've closed ALL of my open word documents except that one.

I've tried to open it using "open recent" in Word

I've trying calling up Mission control and clicking on it.

Now it has totally disappeared. I could just close it in word, but am worried that I'll lose changes. I'm about to cry because I really need to go home.
