Saving your Document
It is good practice to save your document before you start working on it, and to save it periodically as you continue to add to it, to minimise work lost if something goes wrong. Where you save your document depends on where you are working on it.
Personal Computer at home: “My Documents” on the C: Drive
NB: As a precautionary measure it is also good practice to also email your document to yourself so there is always a retrievable copy if there are problems with the other copies.
Saving a New Document to your H:Drive
Click on Save >> The Documents folder is the default drive to SAVE to at EIT >> Please DO NOT SAVE HERE!
You could lose all of your hard work, because the Documents folder at EIT is for TEMPORARY STORAGE ONLY!
You need to change to your H: Drive, using the following steps;
Before you save your work, create a New Folder to keep your H: Drive tidy.
Click on the New Folder icon and the following will appear in your H: Drive;
Give your New Folder a relevant name e.g. ITHD6.240 << Click create
Create a name for your file
NB: If you are at home or are using a USB to save a new document, make sure it is saving to the right location as mentioned above.
Opening and saving an edited document
Browse to the location of your document and open your document. It will open up in Word automatically.
If you cannot see the Save icon on the toolbar, you need to show the toolbar at the top of your document.
Go to View << Toolbars << Standard << Click on Standard and a tick will appear to show the Save toolbar
