WORD WRAP Definition 1
A feature on a word processor that automatically moves a word that is too long to fit on a line to the beginning of the next line. WORD WRAP Definition 2
Word wrapping is when a line of text automatically "wraps" to the next line when it gets to the end of a page or text field. This is different than a "word rap," which involves rhyming words to a rhythmic beat, though that may be more fun than typing. Most word processing programs use word wrap to keep the text within the default margins of the page. Without the word wrap feature, text would continue on one line until the user pressed "Enter" or "Return" to insert a line break. Most programs that incorporate word wrap take the first word that does not fit on a line of text and move it to the beginning of the next line. Advanced word processing programs can hyphenate long words at appropriate places. While it is uncommon, sometimes a word, or string of characters, will take up more than one line. In this case, the word wrap feature will simply continue the string of characters onto the next line. FILE Definition 1

FILE Definition 2
A file is a collection of data stored in one unit, identified by a filename. It can be a document, picture, audio or video stream, data library, application, or other collection of data. The following is a brief description of each file type. Documents include text files, such as a Word documents, RTF (Rich Text Format) documents, PDFs, Web pages, and others. Pictures include JPEGs, GIFs, BMPs, and layered image files, such as Photoshop documents (PSDs). Audio files include MP3s, AACs, WAVs, AIFs, and several others. Video files can be encoded in MPEG, MOV, WMV, or DV formats, just to name a few.

A library file is a unit of data that is referenced by a specific program or the operating system itself. These include plug-ins, components, scripts, and many others. An application is a program, or executable file. Programs such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Apple iTunes are both applications, but are also files.

Files can be opened, saved, deleted, and moved to different folders. They can also be transferred across network connections or downloaded from the Internet. A file's type can be determined by viewing the file's icon or by reading the file extension. If the file type is associated with a specific application, double-clicking the file will typically open the file within the program.

SAVE Definition
To copy the document, record or image being worked on to a storage medium. If the file has already been created on the hard disk, saving updates the file by writing the data currently in memory (RAM) to the disk. All modern applications prompt the user to save data upon exiting if the user has made any changes to them.

Save to Disk
All processing is done in memory (RAM). When the processing is completed, the data must be placed onto a permanent storage medium, which is generally the hard disk. In the past, it might have been magnetic tape. See Save As.

SAVE AS Definition

A command in the File menu of most applications that causes a copy of the current document or image to be created. It differs from the regular Save command, which stores the data back to the file and folder it originally came from. "Save As" lets the user make a copy of the file in a different folder or make a copy with a different name.
