Hi, I am new to sage and now I have really strange question. My sage is running in Oracle VM because I have WIN7. Because I work at two places, I need to transfer the files between to computers. I want to copy and store worksheets from Sage Notebook. And this is the problem. I am not able to save my work properly using the Sage Notebook. I set up in Oracle VM the Shared Folder. Ok, but all I am able to do is to save some html of the worksheet. I would like to store the files .sws directly, not some dummy html. I was not able to find out something in manuals. How can I do this? Or is there another way? I don't want to use some cloud - only my flash-drive. For me it suffices to know how to save the worksheet file (.sws) into the shared folder. Thank You

Once a workhseet is open, there should be a menu (top left): File -> Save worksheet to a file...

Yes, this menu is there, but after clicking to item File->Save worksheet to a file... nothingh happens - almost nothing - in the bottom left there is some icon "filename.sws" - but that's all... Still it doesn't solve my problem, I can do anything with this file (if such file really exists).

Which browser do you use? The one from the VM or the one from Windows? After "Save worksheet to a file" the workhseet should be available in the download repository configured from the browser.
