Chapter 6. Managing Files with My Comput... > Managing Files and Folders

Managing Files and Folders

Although many Windows applications offer basic file management functions, Explorer is the tool you'll use most often to organize your files. Regardless of which view you choose, Explorer allows you to create new folders, copy and move files between folders, delete files, and rename files.

Selecting Files and Folders

Before you can perform any action on an object, you must select the object. The procedures for selecting files, folders, and other icons depend on the folder and desktop options you've chosen. If you've chosen the classic style (double-click) interface, you click on an icon to select it. If you've chosen the Web style (single-click) interface, on the other hand, simply point at a file to select it. Objects change color to indicate that you've selected them.
