There are two main types of Mathematica file - notebooks with a .nb 
suffix, and package files (an unfortunate name, because a .m file can 
contain any code, not necessarily a package) which have a .m suffix. I 
would recommend that you start by using notebooks. It is important to 
realise that notebooks can contain code - just as a .m file - and it has 
the advantage that a notebook will save your results as well.

It is also important to realise that you can open several notebooks (or 
.m files) at the same time. Thus you could open a notebook containing 
code, execute it, activate whatever definitions it contains, and then 
use those definitions in another notebook.

Simply create a folder wherever is convenient for you, start 
Mathematica, do a calculation in the untitled notebook that is created 
for you, and then use the menu item File/Save As. This will let you name 
your file and place it in your folder.
