How can I save my application? Can I stop in the middle of the application and return to it later?

ANSWER: 

As of November 1, 2010, you can save your application, or return to a partially completed application. When you begin a new DS-160, you will be issued a unique application identification (ID) number, after selecting and answering a security question. Once you have your application ID number and have selected and answered a security question, you may exit the DS-160 application and return to it later. You must have your application ID to return to your application. To save your DS-160 to the Consular Electronic Application Center website, click the “Next” button at the bottom of each page you complete. You have 30 days to return to a partially completed application.
