Each time you save a document, its information is saved as a file on your hard disk. When you save that document, you assign both a specific place for the file (a folder) and a name.

The more you work on your computer, the more files you add. After a while, your computer will become cluttered, and you’ll need a way to keep these files organized. Windows provides features that can help you find, organize, and manage your files. The first step is to learn how to select files; you can select one or several files. After files are selected, you can perform file-management tasks such as copying a file to another location or deleting a file you no longer need. If you delete a file by accident, you can recover it. You can also view file details and change the name of a file. All these tasks are covered in this Part.
