In her regular series for Cambridge Network members, software training expert Karen Roem offers handy tips to help you 'Tame your computer'. This week she explains how to save all pictures used in a document in a separate folder (Microsoft Word).
Tame your computer - a smart way to save
Microsoft Word allows you to easily insert illustrations, such as pictures, SmartArt and charts.
So what if, at some point, you want to save all the images you used in your document in a separate folder in order to easily re-use them?
- Open the Word document, as normal
- Click the File tab and select Save As (or press F12)
- Press TAB and type W until Web Page appears (or select it from the drop-down list)
- Press ENTER or click Save
- Close the document/web page without saving it (CTRL + W, anyone?)
All illustrations used (including Clip Art, Shapes and SmartArt, if any) have been placed in a new folder that has the same name as the Word document with _files at the end of it. It is typically stored in the same location as the original Word document.
Unless stated otherwise, these tips were written for Microsoft Office 2010.
