Renaming a File
Click the Cancel button, or press the Escape
key, to close the Open (or Save As) dialog box.
When you first save your file, you’re prompted to
name it. But perhaps you didn’t give it a name
intuitive enough to know what the file represents.
If you use the File tab>Save As command and save
your file with a different name, you have both the
original file and the new file. If you just want to
rename the existing file, you can use the Open or
Save As dialog boxes. Follow these steps:
Deleting a File
Similar to renaming files, you can also use the
Open or Save As dialog boxes to delete unwanted
files. With the application open, click the File tab
and choose Open or Save As. Either the Open or
Save As dialog box appears. Locate the file you
want to delete and choose Organize>Delete. A
confirmation dialog box appears like the one you see
in Figure 1-17. Choose Yes to delete the file, and
then click the Cancel button (or press the Escape
key) to close the dialog box.
With the Office application open, but not the
file you want to rename, click the File tab and
choose Open. The Open dialog box appears.
Use the Save As Dialog Box
Optionally, click the File tab, choose Save As
and proceed using the Save As dialog box.
2. Locate and click once on the file you want to
rename. Do not double-click the file as
double-clicking the file will open it.
Delete unwanted files.
