Managing Documents with a Right Mouse Click

After you display the Explorer (or any other file list in Windows), you can point to any folder or document and click the right mouse button to perform several actions on the document. Here's what you can do with documents:

  • Select documents by clicking them to highlight them

  • Play sound or video files and view graphics

  • Print selected documents

  • Copy selected files to a disk

  • Cut or copy selected text to the Windows Clipboard (an area of memory that holds data that you copy there until you replace the Clipboard's contents with something else or log off Windows)

  • Create a shortcut access to the file so that you can later open the file without using the Open dialog box

  • Delete documents

  • Rename documents

  • Change documents' system attributes
