Chapter 6. Organizing Your Work > Folder Display Options

Folder Display Options

Chapter 5, "Using the Windows 2000 Interface," briefly introduced some of the folder view settings when we talked about the Web view and single-click versus double-click settings. In this section, we'll briefly cover the various settings that affect your view of files, folders, and drives.

In its attempt to create a unified user interface, Microsoft has added numerous standard buttons to all Explorer windows. Some of these tools derive from Web browsers, and some worked their way up from Windows 3.x's File Manager. We now have toolbars with Back, Forward, Search, and History buttons from Internet Explorer, as well as Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, and View buttons, which classically pertain more to file management on the local computer. For the novice, this is a pretty strange mix of bedfellows. Then again, you can type a URL into any folder's address line and it will bring up a Web page. We'll all just have to get used to this kind of seamless integration.
