Saving and naming a file
If a user running an older version of one of these applications needs to open one of your
ﬁ les, you may need to save a copy of the ﬁ le in a compatible format. Here’s how:
1. Click File
Save As. The Save As screen appears in Backstage view.
2. Click Computer in the middle pane. You could leave your SkyDrive selected, and
save the ﬁ le there. Chapter 39, “Collaborating in the Cloud with SkyDrive” describes
that process. Additionally if you have downloaded and saved a ﬁ le from an online
location, you will see an Other Web Locations choice in the middle column and can
use it to return to a prior location from which you saved an online ﬁ le.
3. Under Computer, click a folder, or the Browse button. Any choice displays the
Save As dialog box shown in Figure 3.6.
4. Click the Save as type drop-down list. A list of other ﬁ le formats that you can
select for the copy you’re creating appears, like the one shown in Figure 3.7.
Choose an alternative format for the ﬁ le copy.
