Default "Copy the Program ..."

Your Exercises often say "Copy the program you built in ...."

Are you saying to use Windows Explorer (File Explorer) to copy the folder to a new location, rename it, and copy it back, or is there an easier way to do this in Visual Studio?

I see a Save, and Save All, but how to you "Save As ..." ?

A very important difference!

The Save As command only makes a copy of the file you're working on or the project file but NOT the whole project!

To copy a whole project, you need to copy the project directory and all of the files it contains (except the bin and obj directories).

The easiest way is to go up one level in the directory hierarchy and copy and paste the project directory.

When an exercise says to copy an old program, if you skipped that one or didn't did like your result, you can copy one that id part of the download.
