Here’s a tip I thought you might find useful when trying to find a Word document on your PC if you’re working in Office 2010.
- Save your file as usual.
- Click on the ‘Insert’ tab in your top menu bar (or Ribbon as Microsoft like to call it now).
- Click on ‘Footer’ in the ‘Header & Footer’ menu and scroll down to ‘Edit Footer’. The menu bar at the top will switch to ‘Header & Footer’ tools
- Click on the ‘Insert’ tab again in the top menu.
- Click on ’Quick Parts’ in the text area of the insert menu (if the Quick Parts icon is not in your insert menu area, you can insert it by going to ‘file’, ‘options’ and ‘customize ribbon’).
- Click on ‘Field’
- Scroll down and click on ‘File Name’, choose ‘lowercase’ in the ‘Field Properties area, tick ‘Add path to filename’ in the ‘Field options’ area and click ‘OK’
The ‘path’ will now be at the bottom of your document so when you print, you can easily see where it is saved on your PC/laptop if you need to find it again. Remember to save your document once you’ve done this.
