Saving a File WINDOWS 8



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.

you have to either overwrite the original

file or rename one of the files.
