I'm not sure where you're going with this, but maybe save it to the "C" drive? I think that's usually the designated hard drive on most computers. Give it a name you will remember, then search for it by name later.

I'm assuming you're not using Visual Studio or any other development environment. Here is a link to some free alternatives: Link.

Microsoft also offers an Express Version of Visual C++ and C#.

Am I supposed to know what this is?

Interesting. Two weeks, and we're just now wondering how to save a file to the computer.

In Computers 101 I would have taught how to save and retrieve a file before how to program in C.

For example, if you install Visual Studio, you'll have to create a directory for your solutions. Look at this 'how to' article: Link to MSDN article.

@shrdlu: I'm thinking it's a once-a-week course. Having only played with Macs in my youth, imagine the laughter that erupted at my place of employment when I asked "What's a 'C drive'?"

I came back to check the thread this morning and decided people sure are tough in this community. The question wasn't a simple "how do I save a file to my computer". Geez, give clergy1 a break, he's trying to learn. When I started programming a hundred years ago, I'm glad you guys weren't around to help me!

@missellienc: Love ya, dahlink, but this account has only asked two questions, and done nothing else. I'm a big fan of the field of autodidactery (I just made that up), but when someone's asking the kinds of questions we're seeing here, I can't take it seriously.

When people ask technical questions on Deals that show they've made an effort to find the answer, the community tends to work very hard to be helpful and to provide answers. I certainly have, many times. The OP has never come back to ask further questions via the comments (although I suspect that this is an alternate ego for someone who we might otherwise know).

It also makes me a bit suspicious that only certain comments are downvoted, and then (usually) by just two votes; oops, now some of them are getting three. Interesting.

Oh, well. That's just me, being cynical.

So it goes.
