To save an unsaved file:

1.
Choose File > Save (Cmd-S/Ctrl-S).

2.
Type a name for the document. In the Mac OS, the “Save current document as” field will highlight automatically .

3.
To create a print document, in the Mac OS: Choose Type: Document. In Windows: Choose Save as type: Document (*.qxd). To create a Web document, see page 305. To create a template, see page 35.

4.
Choose a location for the file:

In the Mac OS: Click Desktop, choose a drive from the scroll list, then click Open. Make sure the drive or folder into which you have chosen to save the document appears on the pop-up menu at the top of the dialog box . Optional: To create a new folder for the document in the location you have chosen, click New, enter a name, then click Create.

In Windows: Use the Up One Level button and the Folder List arrow to navigate to the desired location. Make sure the drive or folder into which you have chosen to save the file appears in the Save In field . Optional: To create a new folder for the file in the location you have chosen, click the Create New Folder button, type a name for the new folder, then double-click the new folder to open it.

5.
Optional in the Mac OS: Check the Include Preview box to have a thumbnail of the first page of the document display when you reopen the document using File > Open (check the Preview box in the Open dialog box to display the preview) . If you forget to check the Include Preview box here, you can add the preview later using Save As (see page 34).

6.
Click Save (Return/Enter).

Save frequently! We save almost every time we make a change—it's like an automatic reflex. Note: In addition to manual saving, you may also want to use the Auto Save feature, too (see the sidebar).
