Tame your computer - revise, reuse, rename
If you're going to create a new file, based on an existing one, but only want your changes saved in the new document you can obviously use the Save As command (or press F12). But did you know it’s also a great way to reuse an existing filename with a similar title?
- Open your document.
- Press F12.
- Do one of the following:
- Type the new filename (no need to press the Delete key first) OR
- Press End to move to and amend the end of the filename OR
- Press Home to move to and amend the beginning of the filename
Your original document will remain unchanged and all your edits will be in the new copy.
