Summary

This chapter took a long, hard look at working with files and folders in Windows 98. I began by showing you a number of basic file and folder techniques. From there, I gave a few pointers for unleashing Explorer. Then you learned about working with shortcuts and file types, finding files and folders, and understanding the Recycle Bin. For related information, here are some chapters to check out:

  • Various Registry tricks affect files and shortcuts. I showed you a few in Chapter 13, “A Few Good Hacks: Some Useful Registry Tweaks.”

  • Disk operations such as formatting, copying, compressing, and partitioning are the subject of Chapter 15, “Disk Driving: The Windows 98 Disk Utilities.”

  • I show you how to make backups of your files in Chapter 16, “Working with a Net: The Windows 98 Backup Utility.”

  • To learn how to keep your files safe from harm, check out Chapter 17, “Wielding the Windows 98 System Tools.”

  • To learn how to perform file maintenance from the DOS prompt, see Chapter 23, “DOS Isn't Dead: Unleashing the DOS Shell.”

  • For network-related file and folder info, see Chapter 29, “Working with Network Resources.”
