1. The Location where the file to be saved is going to be placed
2. The File Name. What are you going to name your file?
3. And the File Type
Documents can be saved to various locations within the computer or to external drives.
Looking at My Documents is a good way to find out the possibilities and places where to save.
Because the computers in the labs are used by many students, everybody uses and shares the same computer space to work on and save their documents. The only way to maintain one’s own private space within Work Space is to create a personalized folder with one’s own name to identify who it belongs to.
A folder can be created in a couple of places within a computer. Folders can be created in the Desktop, and any computer drive such as the 31/2 Floppy (A:), Work Space (D:), CD Drive (E:), Shared on ‘edpac-win2000’ (Z:).
The example on how to create a folder will be demonstrated once on the desktop, to avoid redundancy, and will be able to be applied to all other computer drives as well.
Depending on the type of software you are working with when you save, a different type of suffix will apply to the end of your file name.
