Chapter 4. File > File Save As - Pg. 109

File Save As Figure 4-7. Saving a document File Save This command saves the active document. If the document has no name (if it has never been saved before) or if the original document is marked as read-only, the Save As dialog opens. See Chapter 3, for details on configuring various save options. File File Save As This command opens the dialog shown in Figure 4-7, which is used to designate the filename and location for the saved file. This dialog also opens automatically the first time any document is saved, regardless of whether the Save As or Save command is used. This dialog is identical to the Open dialog, it even has a Places bar. Choose the location to save the document in, enter a filename, choose the format to save the document in, and you're finished. Unfortunately, Word gives no clear indication of the file path in this dialog. However, opening the "Look in" drop-down list reveals the location where the file is saved, making it easier to find later. Remove the MRU List of Files in Save As It makes many users uncomfortable that Word maintains a list of the most recently used files opened with the Save As dialog (open the "File name" drop-down list to see them). Get rid of these using the following registry hack. Find and select the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\8.0\Com mon\OpenFind \MicrosoftWord \Settings\Save As\File Name MRU subkey. Right-click the Value entry and choose Modify from the context menu. Delete all the text and click OK. The list is gone. Chapter 4:File | 109
