    Windows 8 preview: Easier file management


    By Katherine Murray

    Are you happy with the way your current version of Windows whether Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7 behaves when you're copying, moving, renaming, or deleting files?

    Windows is notorious for showing inaccurate percentage complete, time remaining, and other information during file operations. Windows 8 is on track to do better.

    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/best-software/windows-8-preview-easier-file-management/ (paid content, opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    "Windows 7 gives you thumbnails of the files and includes links so that you can open the files if you choose (see Figure 4). But you still need to proceed one by one, clicking the files you want to keep." (Emphasis mine).

    This is simply wrong...Win7 does let you do the same initial action for all subsequent files with the same type of conflict.
