Hi Guys

What's the difference between "save" and "save as"

Thanks

Save normally is to save to a file that's already been created and Saved as

Save means save the document as you see it on screen whether it be a new file or an old file - Any chnages that you have will be saved, it will overwrite the file to your chnages.

Save As means that you can save what you see on the screen under a different name. This means you could have two files one old and new.

Save is used to save a file for the first time or with the same name as before. In other words replacing the previous file if you made changes to it.

Save as allows you to open (say a letter) then rename it, make alterations (address it to another person) etc and your original file is unchanged so you have two different files.
