Q. I use files from all over the place. How can I tell what file I’m in and where it is located while I’m working on it?

A. There’s a button you can add to your quick access toolbar called Document Location. Click File, Options, Quick Access Toolbar. Under Choose commands from, choose All commands. Type a D, and then scroll to find Document location, then Add. This will add a field to your Quick Access Toolbar that shows the full path and file name. You can copy and embed it as a footer in your document or paste it into an email if the location is accessible to your recipient. That way, you don’t need to attach it.
