Save a File in Office for Mac

You can save a file to a location on your computer, like a hard disk drive or a flash drive, or on an online service, like OneDrive. You can also export files to different file formats and save them to different file names.

Important: Even if you have AutoRecover enabled, you should save a file frequently while you are working on it to avoid losing data due to an unexpected power failure or some other problem. AutoRecover is described later in the topic “Save AutoRecover information automatically.”

When you save a file, you can usually change its name, storage location, and file format all at the same time, if you want to do so. However, you might not want to do all of those things, and the instructions in this topic describe each option individually.

By default, Office saves a file in a default working folder.

  1. On the File menu, click Save, or press COMMAND + S.

    Tip: Alternatively, you can click the Save icon To save a document, click the disc icon at the top of the window. in the upper left corner of the window.
