File Structure

I am finding it very difficult to locate files after they are created in the responsive site designer software. I probably now have 3 identical projects on my computer in different locations with slightly different names. That is dangerous, as I no longer know which one is current. It appears that the dates are not recent for some reason. Can you provide the file structure as to where files are stored when using the software "out of the box"? Also, if I duplicate a page, how do I rename it? I want to cut corners on making the entire page with links all over from scratch every time and would like to copy a page, rename it (like from home to about us), and then modify that page for use. Finally, how would I be able to take a .rsd project and look at it in the HTML editor? I would like to clean up some code and do a few manual tweaks. Any help appreciated.

I use Open Recent with SD
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.
Here's my CoffeeCup SCCP Shop with examples of what can be done.

Thanks for the tip I still am not certain on file structure. I would hate to be cleaning up and accidentally delete something I need. I have dug around for a bit and made a shortcut folder to where I think the stuff is being updated. I also figured out how to rename pages and change link pointers to those pages to create a multi page website in the site designer app. However, I still need to know if I must export the files to a particular location to view them with the HTML editor, instead of using the RSD app. I would like to tidy up before I try to publish what I'm doing. Thanks.

I have used my responsive apps so much that I don't know where the projects would be stored 'out of the box' any more. But when I started out, I used to save everything to a folder on my desktop, so that I knew where to find it. And I have, and many others are doing the same, a numbering system for various versions, if I want to save versions of a project, something like 'sitename-1', 'sitename-2' etc.
It just takes a bit of dicipline and consistency to begin with.
