03-09-2018

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 reuse a filename and toggle between the beginning and end of its title (Microsoft Office)...

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?

Here’s how:

  1. Open your document.
  2. Press F12.
  3. 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.
