Arguably, the most important function of any computer application is preserving data. In
Excel, you can save your files in many ways, including by clicking the Save, Save As, Share,
or Export command. You can also click the Close command or click the Windows Close
button (X) and you’ll be prompted to save, if you have made any changes. The easiest way to
save is either by clicking the Save button on the Quick Access Toolbar or by pressing Ctrl+S
on the keyboard.
One other command that saves your workbooks is the Share Workbook command in the
Changes group on the Review tab. When you click this command, you save your workbook
in shared mode. Besides saving the file, this command makes the workbook available to
others on a network, who can then open it and make changes of their own.
For more information, see “Sharing workbooks on a network” in Chapter 26.
The first time you save a file, the Save As screen appears in Backstage view, as shown in
Figure 2-23 The Save As screen appears when you save a file for the first time.
