File menu

How to get there

The File menu is the first of NotePad’s unchanging menus.

What it does

As in many computer programs, NotePad’s File menu contains various commands for opening, closing, saving, and printing documents. Finally, the File menu contains the Exit command used to exit the program.

A Finale Notation File is the usual notation file you’ve been working with all along. It can be read by either the Macintosh or Windows version of NotePad.

See Opening files.

The Folder list box works like any Folder list box; double-click a folder to see its contents and use the scroll bars if necessary to view more folders. Select a different drive from the "Look in" drop-down list to view the contents of another drive.

If the power fails or a system error occurs, however, all your editing is lost forever, unless you have remembered to save the changes onto a disk by choosing this command. It’s a good idea to save your work fairly often—every ten minutes, perhaps.
