Part 4. Working with Files

As mentioned in the last part, each time you save a document, that 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. You can copy files, move files, delete unnecessary files, and more, as covered in this part.
