Thank you for joining us today. I’m Rudy Stebih and welcome to Episode 6 – Saving
Your Files in Word 2010 here on Help Desk TV.
The first time you save a document, the Save As dialog box opens. It invites you to give
the file a name and choose a folder in which to store it.
To save a file, you can either: * Click the Save button (you find it on the
Quick Access toolbar). * Press Ctrl+S.
* Go to the File tab and choose Save. Now enter a descriptive name in the File Name
text box. As mentioned, when you save a file for the
first time, in the Save As dialog box, Office shows you the contents of your Documents folder
by default. If this folder is alright for you, go ahead and click the ‘Save’ button.
To store the document in another folder of your choice, click the ‘Browse Folders’
bar (in the lower-left corner of the dialog box) to open the Navigation pane and look
for the folder you wish to save your document in. Here, we will save it to the desktop.
And then click ‘Save’. If you have a favorite folder that you’d
like to keep your files in, you can make this your default folder to save all your future
documents in. All you have to do is go to the file tab and choose options -> ‘save’
category. In the ‘Default File Location' click the Browse button and select the folder
you wish to make as your default save location. Click ‘OK’.
All your documents will now be saved to that folder by default.
