Managing Your Files In Windows 7 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Windows 7
    File Management
  • 2. Finding Your Files
    One way you can find your files is by using the search box on the start menu.
    To access the start menu, simply click the windows start button on the bottom
    left of your screen.
  • 3. Finding Your Files
    Type in a word or part of a word in the search box. As you type, items
    that match your text will appear on the start menu.
    This is very similar to searching with Windows Vista
  • 4. Finding Your Files
    Another way to find your files is by opening the start menu, and clicking on the Computer option.
    This will take you to a screen with options on the left-hand side allowing you to browse through your computer.
  • 5. Finding Your Files
    Your files will be located under the “Libraries” folder. Within the folder your files
    are separated depending on what type of file they are. Those being, Document files,
    Music files, Picture files, and Video files.
    You can also use the “Search Libraries” bar at the top right of the window to find your
    Files which is equivalent to using the search bar directly off the start menu.
  • 6. Adding Folders to Library
    Open the Documents library by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Documents.
    In the library pane (above the file list), next to Includes, click Locations.
    In the Documents Library Locations dialog box, click Add.
    Click the folder or drive containing documents, click Include folder, and then click OK
    This can be convenient if you store your documents in
    Other locations rather than your Public Document Folders.
  • 7. Viewing and Arranging Files
    When you open a folder you have the ability to change how the
    Files look in the window. To make these changes use the
    Views button in the tool bar
    You can then cycle through
    each option (picture on right)
    and watch it change how it displays
    your files.
  • 8. Copying and Moving Files
    A common way to copy and/or move files is drag-and-drop. First, you
    open up the folder that has the file you want to copy. Next, open the
    folder that you want the file to be in. Position the windows side by side,
    according to picture, below then simply click and hold the button while you
    drag the file then release the button when you get to the destination
  • 9. Visual Comparison to Vista
    Windows Vista
    Windows 7
    The “My Computer” screen, where you can view files, is not much different from
    Windows Vista. One thing that is improved on Windows 7 is the pane on the left
    side. It is more visual, and a little more organized.
