Saving and naming a file
Choose a save location and enter a ﬁ le name.
As you continue working with a ﬁ le, you should save it periodically to ensure that your
latest changes are included in the stored version. That way, in the event of a power surge
or problem with your computer, you won’t lose much work. Saving every 10 minutes proves
good insurance for your ﬁ le. To save your latest changes, click the Save button on the
Quick Access toolbar or press Ctrl+S. If you must, you can click the File tab and then click
Save, but why choose two steps when you can choose one?

Compatibility Pack is at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details
