Saving Visual Studio Project as a new name

Basically what I'm looking for is the "Save As" visual studio.

I have a program that I would like to use as a base for creating a few more other programs. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to simply make a copy of my program so that I have a backup of the original. Any ideas? What am I missing?

If you need a copy, the quickest way to do this is to save the project. Then make a copy of the entire file on the File System. Return to Visual Studio and open a copy. From there, I most likely recommend renaming the project / solution so you don't have two identical names, but this is the fastest way to make a copy.



Apparently Visual Studio doesn't have a Save As feature, so you'll have to back up your projects by manually copying them to a new location.
