Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Copying, renaming, and moving a doc, part of Google Docs Essential Training.
- It's easy to copy and move a document.…I've got this document all done.…And maybe I want to create a similar document…while not wanting to start over from scratch again.…The first thing I need to do is…make a copy of this document.…To do that, click File from the top menu…and select Make a copy.…It defaults to adding the word Copy of…in front of the existing document…but you can change the name of it.…For example, I'll take the Copy of out and I'll change…the words New Hires to Existing Employees.…
We haven't gone over sharing a document yet.…But if we had, I could choose…to share it with the same people.…I'll click the blue OK button.…My copy document is created and it opens up in a new tab.…I can actually move back and forth…between my old document and my new one.…I can tell which document I'm on because of the title.…In fact, at any time I could rename a document…by clicking on the document title…and it opens a Rename dialog box.…I could enter a new name if I wanted to…and click the blue OK button.…
For now I'll click Cancel.…
