As a rule, file names should be free of symbols or they could give you headaches when you try and share them. Symbols are characters like %, $, #.  (Example of a problem file name: "Hannah's Essay#8"  vs. "HannahEssay_8") .That's why some programs, like Microsoft Word, for example, restrict what characters you can use to name a document to text and numeric characters. Your teacher/school may have a required naming style for students to use. If not, It's generally best to keep document names text only. Just leave the symbols out. :-)

Everyone's computer operating system and office software programs are different. Word, Google Docs, Pages, Notepad, etc. Some are more common than others and your teacher/school may request a specific program to write it in. If not, no matter what program you wrote your paper in, save it as a PDF file before sending it. Most everyone can open and read a PDF file. To do this, click "Save As" and choose PDF.
