I tried to search before asking but every time I search "copy files to cd" or "save files to cd" I get an error because it says my search keywords were below 4 characters.

I'm using XP Home and want to be able to save files created in WordPad straight to a CD.

Right now I'm:
1. Saving the file in My Documents.
2. Opening My Computer
3. Navigating to the file I want to copy. Then, under File and Folder Tasks, clicking Copy this file.
4. In the Copy Items dialog box, clicking the CD drive and then Copy.
5. In My Computer, double-clicking the CD drive.
6. Under CD Writing Tasks, clicking Write these files to CD.

Is there a faster way to do this using a limited account?

if you are asking if you can directly save to cdrom ie 'burn to cd' I don't one can but it would be simplier just to dragdrop between two open folders on your desktop 'my documents' and 'cdrom drive' as in

frist put my 'document folder' icon on desktop

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r
- paste this in slot: desk.cpl @0,0
- press: enter
- click button: customise desktop
(desktop window opens)
- click box: my documents
(just under 'desktop icons in blue)
- click: OK
(closes window)
- click: apply
- click: OK

then make a desktop shortcut to cdrom drive
- press keyboard button: winkey + e
- click to highlight: cdromdrive
- dragdrop cdromdrive to desktop
(that chreates the shortcut on desktop)

everyday is a gift

Thanks fleamailman, I'll give that a try.
