The file menu contains several options.
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 saying "Project could not save." with options to try again or download it.
Save as a copy generates a totally separate, identical project to the one opened in the editor.
Load from your computer is a feature that allows one to upload projects that one has saved on their computer to the Scratch Website. The file extension for a Scratch 3.0 project is
.sb3; Scratch 2.0 projects with the extension
.sb2 and Scratch 1.x projects with the extension
.sb can also be uploaded into the online editor.
|Note:||The uploaded project will replace the contents of the current project.|
Save to your computer allows one to download projects from the online editor to their computer, which can then be uploaded, shared, or edited offline at a later time.
