Part: I Learning the Basics > Finding and Opening Documents

Chapter 3. Finding and Opening Documents

In this Chapter

  • See how to navigate.

  • Learn how to search for a file when you can’t remember the name or where it is located.

  • Convert documents from a different format so that you can work with documents created in other programs.

  • Learn how to organize your files into folders so that you can locate them later.

  • Learn how files can be moved, copied, renamed, and deleted—all from within the file management dialog boxes.

In Chapter 2, “Creating and Saving Documents,” you learned how to create a document from scratch and save it to disk. In many situations, you can use an existing document to help get you started on a new document. For example, suppose that you create a newsletter for your company for the month of June. When July rolls around, you don’t have to create another newsletter from scratch. You can just open the June newsletter, revise it, and save it as the July newsletter. You leverage the time and energy you spent on the June newsletter to simplify the creation of the July newsletter. The key to making this work is being able to find the file you need when you need it. After all, what good is that well researched, carefully planned, professionally designed document if you can’t find it later?
