Opening, Saving, and Browsing for Documents

When you use a program such as Word, you often have to open a file. You open it by choosing Open from the File menu. When you do that, the Open dialog box appears. You'll see a list of files that the program commonly uses: in this instance, .doc, .dot, .htm, .html, and .url files. Even though many other kinds of files might be found in a particular folder, each program filters out files, and only shows those of a certain type. To see more file types, click the Files of type arrow and choose other files to show from the drop-down list.

Whenever you open a file in a program such as Word, the Open dialog box appears, letting you browse through your hard disk for the file you want to open.
