Windows 7: Can't Find Document

Can't Find Document

When I create a text file in either Open Office or MS Works and then save it, I can find it and open it in the program that created it, but NOT in the Documents library! Why?

Perhaps because the folder you are saving it in is not included in the Documents library.

Right click the folder containing the document(s). Select Include In Library, select Library.

The Library is not a location, per se. It is like a relationship of locations.
