The File Menu is a dropdown menu with options related to metadata about the project.

Online Editor Features

New
New is a feature that creates a new blank project in the editor. It will not overwrite the previous project, as it is a separate project in My Stuff.
Save now
Save now saves all of the changes made to the project since the previous state. If Internet connection is available, the save will be updated to the server properly; otherwise a message will appear near the top-right saying "not saved: no network connection".
Save as a copy
Save as a copy generates a totally separate, identical project to the one opened in the editor.
Go To My Stuff
Go To My Stuff takes one to his or her my stuff page.
Upload from your computer
Upload from your computer is a feature that allows one to upload projects that one has saved on his or her computer to the Scratch Website. The file extension for a Scratch 2.0 project is .sb2; Scratch 1.x projects with the extension .sb can also be uploaded into the online editor.
Note Caution: The uploaded project will replace the contents of the current project.
Download to your computer
Download to your computer allows you to download projects from the online editor to your computer, which can then be uploaded.
