Programming > Visual Basic > Tutorial > 9 - Saving Your Work
To save your work, click on File, Save Project As... You will first be prompted to save your form, then your project. Just like when saving any other work on a computer, you can specify what names are given to your saved files and where they are saved to.
There are 3 types of file that are saved to your computer when you save a project as shown below. To open the full project from when browsing files in Windows Explorer for example, you must double click on the icon that looks like the one on the right in the image below otherwise the whole project will not load.
The two project files shown above contain information regarding the project and your workspace in the VB development environment. The form file contains all of your coding that exists for that form as well as all of the form's properties.
