If you want to make a copy of a Word document, you risk accidentally overwriting the original document. With few additional clicks, one is immune from it.
Sometimes it is necessary to create a new Word document based on an existing file. Most users then open the existing file in Word, edit the text and save the result under a new file name. This works, but there are risks: If you are not careful, you can accidentally overwrite the original file when saving. It is better to let Word create a new document right from the start.
