Saving Your Document

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

EIT: H: Drive (never save to the desktop as this is resets every time the computer is re-started)

Home & EIT: USB Memory Stick

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

The first time you save a new document at EIT you need to select where save it. This will always happen when you are working on new documents.

Click on Save >> The C: Drive is the default drive to SAVE to at EIT >> Please DO NOT SAVE HERE!

You could lose all of your hard work, because the C: Drive at EIT is for TEMPORARY STORAGE ONLY

 

You need to change this to your H: Drive.

 

Before you save your work, create a New Folder to keep your H: Drive tidy.

 

Click on the New Folder icon and following will appear in your H: Drive;

 

Give your New Folder a relevant name e.g. ITHD6.240, see below;

 

Press Enter >> Click on Open

 

Create a name for your file

 

Click Save.

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.
Once you have finished making your changes to your document click on the save icon at the top.

If the save icon is not showing on the top of your document, you need to add it to the Quick Access Toolbar.

 

To add a button to the Quick Access Toolbar, you need to open the toolbar by clicking on the down arrow, shown below.

 

Select Save and the Save icon will be added to your Toolbar. This will update your document and save where you opened your document from.
