    • You may type a new file name for the sample resignation letter, but don't change the file type from RTF or your applications may not recognize it.

IE Download Window

  1. Click the Save button and the download proceeds.

Try it below or return to Download Sample Letters first (the page that might have delivered you here). The links below open a new browser window, so you can still see these instructions and try other samples. Each time you click a sample link again, the new sample displays in the same new window, but this window will cover it because you clicked here last. Just bring the new window to the front of your screen. For example, in Windows® 95, click on it in the taskbar below.
