Creating  a  new folder in Window 7 isn't hard. You will be able to be more organized  and have  smaller  list of files.

Save As a document in Microsoft Word

Now you have a new folder where you can Save your documents. Documents could be any from Microsoft Office. Let's take this example from Microsoft Word. I recommend you save your document before you finish your work because  this action prevent losing all the work that has been done.



1. Click on  File button.





2. Click on Save As.




3. Double click on  the folder where do you go to save the document.

4. On the File Name box, type the name of the document.

Save changes of the Document

Saving documents is easier  and less steps than Save As. With this action you will  save changes made to a document previously saved, before close the document, you have two options:

1. Click on the Save button in the Quick Access Toolbar

2. Or Click on File button, and

3. Click on Save button.





After that, all your changes that you made in your document  will be saved.
