If this is the first time you have saved your run order Windows Explorer will open and you can select where to save. The file extension is .awp

You can also save your work at any time by clicking CTRL+S

When you have made an edit to your run order, but have not yet saved it, the save button will be white.

When you have made an edit to your run order, and then save it the save button will be grey in colour.
