Beginner at Programming

Hi there,
I am taking my first course in Data Science, I downloaded Atom today but I have troubles using it.

For instance how can I open up a brand new empty file in my text editor, name it and save it to a specific folder?

Whenever I try to create a new file it’s “untitled” and there’s no option for me to rename it and add the .py extension.

Thank you in advance.

It’ll ask you for the path and the filename once you try to save it (e. g. via Ctrl+S). Until then it only exists in the editor and doesn’t have a name (it isn’t named “Untitled”, it’s literally untitled).
