Working with Files
Saving a File
Click the Save button on the Standard toolbar ( or click File on the menu bar, and then
click Save or Save As).
In the Save As dialog box, click the Save in list arrow, and then navigate to the location
where you want to save the file.
Type a filename in the File name text box.
Click the Save button.
To resave the named file to the same location, click the Save button on the Standard
toolbar ( or click File on the menu bar, and then click Save).
The two lines of text you typed are not yet saved on disk. You’ll do that now.
To save a file for the first time:
1. Click the Save button on the Standard toolbar. The Save As dialog box opens. The first
few words of the first line appear in the File name text box, as a suggested filename. You’ll
replace this with a more descriptive filename.
2. Click the Save in list arrow, and then click the location that contains your Data Files.
Trouble? If you don’t have the Common Office Features Data Files, you need to get them
before you can proceed. Your instructor will either give you the Data Files or ask you to
obtain them from a specified location (such as a network drive). In either case, be sure that
you make a backup copy of your Data Files before you start using them, so that the original
files will be available on your copied disk in case you need to start over because of an error
or problem. If you have any questions about the Data Files, see your instructor or technical
support person for assistance.
