Lesson 3. Creating a New Presentation > Saving a Presentation

Saving a Presentation

After you create a new presentation, it makes sense to save it. To save a presentation for the first time, follow these steps:

1.
Select File, Save, or just click the Save button on the Standard toolbar. The Save As dialog box appears (see Figure 3.6).

Figure 3.6. Type a name for your presentation into the Save As dialog box.


2.
In the File Name text box, type the name you want to assign to the presentation. Your filenames can be as long as 255 characters and can include spaces.

3.
The Save In box shows in which folder the file will be saved. The default is My Documents. To select a different drive location for the file, click the Save In drop-down arrow and select one from the list that appears. To save to a specific folder in the drive location you've selected, double-click the folder in which you want to store the file.

4.
Click Save.

Now that you have named the file and saved it to a disk, you can save any changes you make simply by pressing Ctrl+S or clicking the Save button on the Standard toolbar. Your data is saved under the filename you assigned the presentation in the Save As dialog box.

To create a copy of a presentation under a different filename or location, select File, Save As. The Save As dialog box reappears; follow steps 2 to 4 as discussed in this section to give the file a new name or location.
