Hi, could someone please explain why I cannot save anything in notepad, as when I try to save something that I need to in notepad, nothing happens?

If you go into file and choose "save as" and give it a title it should save that way.

Make sure you save it somewhere you know where to find it.It should save in "my documents" automatically though.

My system (Office 2003) seems to automatically save it to the C Drive, so you may need to change it and specify My Documents.

Thanks for coming back to me, but as I said when I want to save and I click save when I get a report from my anti virus software, nothing happens, a sign of the notepad comes up and then just disappears, and it does not give me a choice?
