“Save as” Shortcut for Office 2013

Tech Tip Tuesday – Office 2013 Shortcut

Save As Button

As a new feature in Office 2013, the “Save As” function has an additional step. Unlike previous Office versions and virtually every other Windows program, File | Save As takes the user to an intermediate screen that helps advertise Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage feature. A user can easily make the “OneDrive” location go away by unchecking “Show Additional Places For Saving, Even If Sign-In May Be Required” under Options, but the intermediate step will remain.

Fortunately, there is a solution. Users can just hit F12 to do a Save As. F12 goes directly to the regular Save As screen that users are familiar with. Alternatively, in case users may not remember F12, you can add a “Save As” icon to the Quick Access Toolbar.
