Welcome to LQ!!!

I am not entirely sure what you are asking for? If you are talking about how you can save and exit in vi then you can do that by pressing ESC key and then :wq + Enter.

If you want to learn more about vi here are the links: http://www.tutorialspoint.com/unix/unix-vi-editor.htm and http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/Lin...vanced_vi.html

So you created a file in some directory.
Then you pasted some text into the file you just created, using the vi editor.

Now what is it you want to do exactly? What do you mean go back home?

If you want to save your changes and exit, hit ESC, then Shift+Z+Z.

Not sure what you mean by going home and being under the filename.

But if you created the file while in the home directory, the file will be saved in the home directory or whichever the current directory you initiated the vi command. .


You can also supply a path to where to save the file. For example

Code:
vi /path to save the file/filename
Or you can specific the path within vi by hitting the ESC key and then typing

Code:
:wq /path to save the file/filename
You can return back home by typing either commands below

Code:
cd ~

Or 

cd
