Working With Files

The work you do with an application is stored in files. These files might be on the computer's hard drive, or on a removable device such as a USB flash drive. You can open and examine a file or save a file to store your work. This section describes actions you can perform in the File dialog.

All desktop applications use similar dialogs for opening and saving files, presenting you with a consistent interface.
