Opening & Saving Programs on Your Computer
If you are working in a school (or other setting where multiple people use the same computer), which of the following should you use to open a program you wrote earlier?
If the program was the very last program that you wrote, you can use the "open recent" drop-down menu. Otherwise, use the "open" option on the "file" menu.
You should use the "open" option on the "file" menu.
Once you have downloaded a program to the NXT, it is deleted from the computer. There is no way to open a program once you have downloaded it to the NXT.
Both the "open recent" and "open" menus are equally valid choices.
