Saving a New Document

When you create a new document in Word, it is stored temporarily in your computer's memory under the default name Documentn, where n is a number that increases by 1 for each new unnamed document. The document is only "remembered" until you quit the program or turn off the computer. To save a document permanently so you can retrieve it later, you must assign a name and save it to disk.

  1. Click File, Save; click the Save button on the Standard toolbar; or press Ctrl+S. The Save As dialog box appears (see Figure 4.1).

  2. In the File Name text box, enter the name you want to assign to the document file. The name can be up to 256 characters long and should be descriptive of the document contents.

  3. If you want to save the document in a different folder or drive, click the Save In drop-down arrow and select a different folder and/or drive.

  4. Click Save. The document is saved to disk and the name you assigned appears in the title bar.
