Avoid losing your document by saving it immediately

Searching for a lost document can be extremely frustrating...especially when that document is an assignment that is due in a few minutes.  Avoid this hassle by naming and saving your document as soon as you create it.

How to do this from a campus computer:

1.  Open Word (Windows symbol-->All Programs-->Microsoft Office-->Word 2013).

2.  Click Blank Document.

3.  On upper left, click File.

4. On the next screen, click Save As and Computer.

5.  Select your T: drive (note: it may have your UID # as part of its name).  This will allow you to retrieve your document from anywhere on campus.

6. Give your document a name. Bonus: Saving your document right away activates Auto Save.
