While Tears of the Kingdom may have a very generous auto-save system, knowing how to save your game manually is essential. You never know when something is about to hit the fan, and having a manual backup ready to go in case things get a little too hectic for your liking can be a literal game changer. To access the save menu, you’ll first need to bring up your Inventory/Menu screen by pressing the + Button on your controller.

Once inside of this menu, you’ll want to use the L & R buttons on the top of your controllers to navigate to the Gear icon at the far right of the screen. Once you have gotten here, you’ll see the screen below.

You can create a New Save or manually overwrite an older save, so you can get rid of some of the clutter that is in this particular menu, or continue to add to it. The choice, much like the way you tackle this adventure, is completely yours.
