It is important to know how to save the documents you are working with. Frequently saving your documents helps to keep you from losing your work, and using Save As allows you to edit a document while leaving the original copy unchanged.
There are many ways you share and receive documents, which will affect how you need to save the file. Are you downloading the document? Saving it for the first time? Saving it as another name? Sharing it with someone who does not have Word 2010? All of these things will affect how you save your Word documents. In this lesson, you'll learn how to use the Save and Save As commands, how to save as a Word 97-2003 compatible document, and how to save as a PDF.
