Provide Name and Choose/Verify Location
Name your file in the File Name field.
Choose an Extension (e.g. ".c", ".cpp", etc.). In general, this should be set automatically to the correct extension based on the file type you created.

- Optionally, select a subdirectory of the Location by clicking on the browse button next to the Folder combo box and picking a directory. The Created File item will show the full path for the new file to help you verify that you have chosen the options above correclty.
