If I have a file that I want to reference or put up to ask a question on how would I do that? Bearing in mind that I'm a new user.
What kind of a file?– PekkaApr 5, 2014 at 3:50
Files such as doc– user257774Apr 5, 2014 at 3:51
We don't host files, and I would strongly discourage any questions that require you to reference uploaded files elsewhere. You're better off distilling your question down to a minimal example.
For images, you can upload them but until you gain at least 10 reputation you won't be able to include them inline. Just click the image button (or press Ctrl+G):
...and follow the prompts until you get a bit of Markdown that looks like this...

Then remove the exclamation point so that you can post it (once you're no longer a new user, you can skip this step).
LOL in that case next question is how do I get/earn reputations Apr 5, 2014 at 3:53

Stack Overflow does not allow file uploads apart from images. If you really want to upload files, used a file sharing service like Dropbox or Google Drive and post the links in your question.

1And it is bad advice as well. We don't want questions that point to dead content.– reneMar 30, 2015 at 19:19
