Saving @ EIT


Saving your Document

It is good practice to save your document before you start working on it, and to save 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 reset everytime the computer is restarted)
Home & EIT: USB Memory Stick

NB. As a precautionary measure it is also good practice to 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 to save it. This will always happen when you are working on new documents.

Click on Save >> the following screen will appear

Click on the Browse button >> The following screen will appear;





You need to select 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 the following will appear in your H: Drive;



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



Press Enter >> Click to 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 of the ribbon.


If the save icon is not showing at 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 Customise the Quick Access 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 documents and save where you opened your document from.
