Saving a File with a Different Name or Format

On the File menu of the program you are working in, click Save As. Specify (type in) (or scroll to view the file extension options) the name and or format in which you want to save the file. If the file was previously saved with a different name or format, that version will remain unchanged.

[spacer]File Protection

If a file was previously saved with a different name or format, that version will remain unchanged. This serves as a protection of the original file in case you make a mistake or lose the new file.


When working with graphics we can change the type of file (format) for instance from a bitmap (.BMP) to a JPEG (.JPG) and still view the picture. The properties of the file also change in this instance.

[spacer]Warning!

Changing the file extension to a file type that is not compatible will render the file unreadable!

On the bright side, changing the extension back again will magically make the file readable again.


All files have some sort of format to identify the program they are associated with. These file formats are better understood by learning more about file naming conventions (methods).
