Key Points

  • The My Documents folder is the preferred location for storing your personal data files. Windows XP automatically creates the My Pictures and My Music subfolders for you, and you can add other subfolders as you see fit.

  • Use Windows Explorer for day-to-day file management tasks.

  • You can choose from as many as six different views of a folder.

  • Normally, Windows hides temporary files and system files from you. Using the Folder Options dialog box, you can make these files visible.

  • To copy or move a file between folders in Windows Explorer, hold down the right mouse button and drag the files to the new location. When you release the mouse button, choose the action you want to take—copy, move, or create a shortcut—from the menu.

  • Windows XP includes a new feature that allows you to rename a group of files all at once.

  • Windows Explorer allows you to add files to a Compressed (zipped) Folder, reducing the size of files and making them easier to transport. In addition, you can turn on file compression for an entire folder, as long as the drive is formatted with NTFS.
