Short cuts folder for instructors

We offer instructors access to a Short Cuts Folder that gives you a place to save documents that users in your class can easily access. There are two methods to drop documents into the folder.

Method one

  1. Open a document that you created.
  2. Click the file tab.
  3. Click Save As.
  4. Click Computer.
  5. Click Desktop.
  6. Double click the Short Cuts folder.
  7. Name the file.
  8. Click Save.

To make sure the document is in the folder, double click the Short Cuts icon on the desktop and look for your file. Everyone in the class should be able to double click on the short cuts folder and see your document.

Method two

The other way to save a document to the Short Cuts folder is to save the document to the desktop and drag it into the short cuts folder.
