Saving Your Work

When you open a file, whether you're creating a new one or opening one that already exists, the program creates a space in your computer's memory where it keeps the information while you work with it. Remember what I told you about memory, though: Anything in memory exists only as long as the computer is on. To keep the file safe when you turn off the computer, you must give it a name and save it to disk.You can save a file by selecting Save from the File menu. The keyboard shortcut—the gesture that should become automatic—is usually Ctrl+S (pressing the Ctrl and S keys at the same time). The first time you save a document, Windows will display the Save As dialog box, where you can name the document and select the folder you want to save it in. Every time you save after that, the program will save your changes in the same document and in the same directory.

The first time you save a document, the Save As dialog box (this one is from Windows WordPad) will appear asking you to give the file a name and choose the directory you want to save it in.
