Q. How do I save to a flash drive?


1. Plug your flash drive into a USB port on your computer. These are located on the side of computer monitor. 

2. Now your Flash drive is ready to have files placed on it.Click the File tab at the top of your document. Click Save As, and name your document in the File Name box.

3. Select your Flash Drive in the menu of locations to the left ( your flash drive will appear as the name of its manufacturer or brand unless you have given it another name). This should open your flash drive, showing anything you might already have saved.

4. Click Save to add your document to this flash drive. Your document will be saved to the flash drive, but not the computer on which you were working. If the document is extremely important, you may want to save in multiple locations (flash drive, Google Drive, etc.) in order to ensure you do not lose your files.
