You can also access files from your Google Drive folders.

Rename a Project
To rename a project, select the project name box.
Enter the project name, and select “Rename.”
Save Using the File Menu
Open the File menu and select “Save To Your Device.”
The "Download manager" will appear and let you know your project has been saved in the Chromebook's Downloads folder.
Select "Show In Folder" to see your downloaded project.
In the Downloads folder, you'll see a file with a .iqblocksskills extension. This means your project has been successfully saved.
If you want to move your project from the "Downloads" folder to your Google Drive, expand the "Google Drive" menu, then drag your VEXcode IQ project into a folder in your "Google Drive."
Common Issue when Loading/Saving
A common issue when using VEXcode IQ project files (.iqblocksskills) is trying to select the .iqblocksskills file to be opened directly by the operating system.
If you try to open a VEXcode IQ project file (.iqblocksskills) by double clicking it, nothing will open.
All VEXcode IQ project files (.iqblocksskills) can ONLY be opened within the web-based version of VEXcode IQ. See the ‘Load an Existing Project’ section from this article for more information.
