How to Use Save Space

This tutorial is to help walk a user through saving documents to the save area

If you notice after log on to the computer there is a short cut on the desktop that takes you to a partition of the drive that has been set aside for items of importance. Meaning these items will not be deleted when the computer reboots.


Just double click on the short cut icon and a new window will open. There will be a folder called “VirusDefs”. It is critical that this folder not be deleted.

When creating your own personal save area. Go to “File” select “New” and then “Folder”

This will create a “New Folder” that is ready to be named.

For the purpose of this tutorial I chose to name the file “Your Name”. Choose one that works for you.

To help organize the contents of your personal folder I have chosen to create three separate folder inside the “Your Name“ folder one for word documents, power points and one for website links.

To place links in the web link folder double click on the folder. Open your web browser and navigate to the page you want to save. From the address bar drag the URL to the folder. An Icon will be created that can be used next time to access the web page.

Saving word document to the save area click on the "Office Button"

Select save as word document

When the save as window opens go to My Computer

Select “Save Area( D: )”

Look for the folder that you named, in this case it is “Your Name”, click on your folder

Since this is a word document I want to save the file in my word documents folder

By default word wants to save the first document doc1.

Creating and saving a power point presentation click on the “Office Button”.

Click on the file save as. New window will open click on “My Computer” click on Save Area(D: )

Look for the folder that you named, in this case it is “Your Name”, click on your folder

Since this is a power point I want to save the file in my powerpoints folder

By default power point wants to save the first presentation as presentation1.
