SAVING A DOCUMENT IN WORD

To save your work you simply need to click on the Save icon or click on the File drop-down menu and choose Save or hold down the CTRL key and then press S.  The following window is displayed:

Choose the drive and folder you want to save your work on from the box beside the words Save in at the top of the window.  Click on the arrow at the right hand side of the box to see a list of alternatives.  When the drive or folder you require is shown in the box at the top of the window, type a name for your file beside the words File name at the bottom of the window.  

You can also use the icons at the top of the window to move up to the folder above the one you are in  or to create a new folder within the drive you are using .  You can now click the Save button and you will be returned to your document.

If you want to save a document in an older version of word you will need to use the box beside Save as type at the bottom of the window and choose the appropriate file type, eg Word 6.0/95.  You can also use this box to choose to save documents as templates but you will have to make sure you save them in your templates folder (see Word Options - File Locations)

If you have previously saved a document but now want to make a copy of it or save an updated version with a different name you will need to click on the File drop-down menu and choose Save As.  You will see the same window as above and can enter a new file name (or use the same file name but a different type of file, eg Word 6.0/95).  Click the Save button and you will now have your original document save as it was and your new document with a different name and/or file extension.
