I have to wonder when the major software manufacturers will change their 'save' icons.I teach computing to Primary (aka Elementary) school children. There have been numerous times I have had to stop myself from saying "press the floppy disk'.Flash media (and now the cloud) have made floppy and cds disks redundant. Kids and newbie users have no more relationship to these as then they do with dial telephones and typewriters.
Thats a good question. What should the save icon be?
Save icon? Is that a windows thing?
On my phone, the icon is the image of a little safe.
@ankarli yeah, thats a good question.I believe it is a Windows thing because all of the MS Office programs still have the floppy disc icon to Save.I think its a universal symbol for Save now. When you see it, you automatically know what it means.
I miss floppy disc
Got a tip, home tour, or other story our readers should see?
