There are several ways to save a file to your desktop.
1. Using your mouse, right-click on your desktop background. Select New and then select either Text Document or Folder, depending on what you want to save. When the file or folder is created, name it as desired. When finished, double-click the file or folder to open it. Once the file or folder is opened, you can drag and drop the file to your desktop or use the “Save As” command to save it to your desktop.
2. Open the program containing the file that you wish to save. Select File from the menu bar and then choose Save As (or Save). In the Save window that appears, find the Desktop folder on the left side of the window which will be located inside the My Documents folder. Select the Desktop folder as the destination and click Save to save your file to the desktop.
3. Use the Windows Search bar to locate the file that you want to save. Right-click on the file and select Send To and then select Desktop (create shortcut). This will create a shortcut on your desktop that will open the file when clicked. If you want to save the file itself on the desktop, right-click the file again and select Copy. Then right-click on the desktop background and select Paste. This will place a copy of the file on your desktop, which can be opened directly without going through the original program.
4. Some programs give you the option to save files directly to the desktop. To do this, open the program, click File from the menu bar, and select Save. In the Save window that appears, select the Desktop folder from the list of folders on the left side of the window. Then click the Save button to save the file directly to the desktop.
No matter which method you use, you can easily save files to your desktop from any program. It’s just a matter of taking a few steps to make sure you have the correct settings set up.
