After you have entered some content in a document, it’s a
good idea to save the file on a regular basis so that you don’t
lose your work. You can save a document file to your computer
hard disk or to external storage such as a USB flash drive or
DVD. When saving for the first time, you can give the file a
name and choose a format to save it to; the application’s native
format is the default. You can also save a copy of the file with a
different name or in another location to create a backup copy
in case the original is damaged.
Save a File
1 With a new WordPad document
open, click File.
2 Click Save.
3 Click to select a library or folder to
which to save the document.
4 Enter a document name.
5 Select a different document format, if
6 Click Save.
If you want to save a copy of a file you’ve previously
saved, in step 2 you would click Save As,
choose a location to save the file to, give it a
new name if you like, and save it. You can’t save
two files with the same name in the same location;
you have to either overwrite the original
file or rename one of the files.
