Saving a Mac File

by McLjg / January 27, 2014 11:11 AM PST

I want to take a template form that I have been E-mailed, fill it out, save it under a specific name and also be able to E-mail it. When I fill out the form I do not have an opportunity to "Save As" only "Save" which covers up my template form. What to do? I will want to use the blank template form several times.

It won't let me copy it to anything. The copy command under Edit is not highlighted and pressing "Command - C" does nothing. I tried changing the name and then saving it. It apparently saved it but not to the name I gave it and I can't bring it up from where it is. The template extension was originally a pdf file. Now in my edited version it is .docx.pdf. The only way I can keep it on the computer so I can get to it is to minimize the edited version. This is a brand new Mac.

Doesn't Apple have a file explorer that we copy files with?

I have a work-around for now. My wife found a way to save it to the Desktop. She is an old Mac user but couldn't find a way to do what I wanted to do - save it as a named file to a specific folder under My Documents. I'm new to the Mac having been on the PC for many years. Thanks to those that replied.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
