10. Creating new files in a program

Often when you have a program open, you want to create a new file. For example, you might want to start a new document In Microsoft Word to contain your history essay (we'll talk about using Microsoft Word shortly.)

In just about any program in Windows, you can create a new file for that program with the same method.

  1. Find the File Menu at the top left of the screen.
  2. Left-click on it once.
  3. Select New...
  4. Then your program will give you a New dialog box that gives you options for your file.

Here's the New... dialog box for Photoshop:
