Before diving into Fire Studio, it's crucial to get a handle on file management. As you begin crafting and storing simulations, saving files to your hard drive becomes essential. This encompasses both the simulation files themselves and any additional custom files you introduce into the program. Primarily, you might want to start with custom backgrounds, but establishing an organized structure for these files from the get-go is key.

Once you've placed your custom files in a specific location, Fire Studio will consistently reference that same spot every time you use the program. If you opt to relocate these files afterward, it could lead to issues with some of your simulations not opening correctly.

Upon launching Fire Studio for the first time, a series of folders will be generated under Your PC/Documents/FireStudio7.

These additional folders are automatically generated. This designated area is an excellent spot to include as many folders as necessary. You can create folders for various purposes such as different backgrounds, sounds, and simulations.

Here is an example:

In this example, we’ve added a couple of folders (Custom Background and Simulations). You can add as many folders as you need now, and as many as you need later.

* It is recommended that you DO NOT store your files on your desktop! On computers where there are multiple users, files may not be located properly, or may be moved or deleted by other users.
