Save, Rename and Move Files With the Title Bar

You can save, rename and move files using the title bar while the file is open and you are working on it. There is no need to use the File menu for the most common file functions. You don't need to close a file to rename or move it.

    Great tip!!! Using text edit you said the saved document continues to update automatically. Does this happen in all applications when you use the” title bar tip” to do the initial saving?

    Luigi: It happens in most applications, but has nothing to do with the title bar. Modern apps like Pages, Numbers, Keynote, TextEdit, etc, will save automatically. Try it. Create a document in Pages and save it. Then type something. Close the document without saving. Then open it again.

    Spiffy!

    Appreciate the full run down on this– and your clear presentation, friendly approach, and good voice.

    The programs you list are all Apple’s. Alas, this does not seem to work in any of the programs in Microsoft Office.

    It does, though, seem similar to how Pages and Numbers work in iOS– at least so far as the naming and renaming goes.

    Ignorance is here. You said TEXT EDIT. How do I find and use this? Is there an advantage to using TET EDIT over WORD?

    Nevermind, Gary. I just found it in APPLICATIONS!

    Sharon: TextEdit is a great Mac app that has been around for a long time. I’ve done lots of videos on it: http://macmost.com/tag/textedit

    What is the “tag” that shows when re-naming a file & how do you use it?
