Chapter 6. Organizing Your Work > Organizing Your Files and Folders

Organizing Your Files and Folders

This section discusses tricks of the trade for organizing your documents and files on the local machine. I'll discuss the folder system and then point out the differences and advantages of the Windows Explorer as a means for maintaining your file system. If you're already adept in using these tools, you may want to skim this discussion just to pick up some tips that might be new to you.

If you're like most people, you're already a card-carrying member of the My Computer users clan or you're addicted to the Windows Explorer. Or, if you're really a geek, like Brian, you use a DOS box to do all your file management. Personally, I can't see doing that for most chores, because the GUI makes such light work of hard disk housekeeping. I'll admit, though, that there are some times when the old C:> prompt comes in handy for such things as batch-renaming of files. I was a File Manager convert early on with Windows 3.0, and now I use Windows Explorer to do most of my work in Windows 9x and Windows 2000.
