Microsoft Excel is a program used to build spreadsheets and analyze data. Businesses often use Excel for financial record keeping, graphs and the analysis of marketing data. Excel also has the capability to combine with other Microsoft Office products for charts and presentations with a professional experience. Excel allows you to work on multiple workbooks in one session. If you've created a project in Excel, it's important to properly close the program so that you don't lose vital information.
Navigate to the "File" tab in the top left-hand corner of the Excel program. Click on "File" and click on the "Save As" tab underneath "File." In the pop-up window, type in the name of the workbook and navigate to the location where you want it saved. Click "Save." This will ensure that none of your information is lost.
Point your mouse cursor to the upper right-hand corner of the Excel program and hit the "X" symbol to close out your workbooks. Do this with each open workbook.
Navigate your cursor to the very upper-left hand corner of the Excel program and click on the Excel symbol. Scroll down on the menu and click on "Close" or "Exit Excel."
