Next Click Download Keystore file UTC/JSON , This is Your Wallet File. save this file back it up send it to someone you trust because that file is your wallet.
The next time you want to open/ View your wallet and see if coins have been airdropped in you go to myetherwallet site & at the top you will see “view wallet info” Click on that tab input UTC File and password.

Adding New Coins To Myetherwallet that aren’t there.
To add a coin to Myetherwallet that you can’t seem to find in the list ( you can always wait instead of taking this method, myetherwallet will add the coins eventually there are just so many!)
use Etherscan.io (you can find etherscan.io on your main page after you login to your wallet) : you type the name of the coin that you are looking for in the search bar so for example ETH, and press enter, the screen will reload with a address at the top that also starts with 0X. This is the ETH Contract Address, then if you scroll down it will tell you ticker so its ETH again (ETH for Ethereum) and the last thing you need to know is Decimals, just keep scrolling down and you will see it, its all there on etherscan.io.
You take this info back to Myetherwallet and login with your UTC file in the “View Wallet Info” tab again, scroll down until you see ” Add Custom Token ” and punch in the address,Ticker & decimals and click save. Now your New Coin is added to your wallet.
