Managing Your Files In Windows 7Presentation Transcript
Windows 7 File Management
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 folder.
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.
