    • We recommend storing files in a folder that is in an easily accessible location (i.e.C:\Users\[Windows username]\Desktop\)
    • Due to common file restrictions on the root directory of a windows computer (C:\), we suggest not saving to C:\ and saving your file within a folder.
    • Windows users: If you receive the prompt "You don't have permission to save in this location.  Please contact the administrator to obtain permission."
