Managing your files effectively

Saving a file

While there are many places to save your file on a lab computer, we only recommend certain places to prevent data loss.

Your Documents folder or your Desktop are the safest places to save a file.

When opening a file from Angel or Webmail, especially a Microsoft Office document, it may open from a temporary location. This means that the file will be deleted immediately when you log off and there is no way to recover it.

To prevent this from happening, when working with a file you downloaded, always go to the File menu and choose Save As and save the document to a more permanent location, such as your Documents folder or your Desktop.
