*     Renaming and Movements of Files

 

 

Sometimes you give your friends and pets new names. When using Windows, you can easily give new names to your files and folders.  

 

*     Given below are the steps for renaming the files:

  • In the Windows Explorer, place the mouse pointer on that file which you want to rename and click the right button of the mouse and select Rename.
  • You will see a box with the file's name and the name appears highlighted. Start typing the new name.
  • When you start typing new name, the original name is deleted and is replaced by the new name.
  • Now press Enter, file icon appears with its new name, See Figure 4.6.13)      

 

 

 

Taking a file from one folder to another Just as you would change the location of your toys and books at times, you can even take a file from one folder and move it to another. Suppose you had created a Paint file and named it 'flower' and had saved it in the folder named My Documents. Later you feel that shifting it to a folder called Drawings would be more appropriate and easier to locate later. Here is one way to do this. Click Start, Select Programs and Select Windows Explorer. This is an application program that lists all folders, files, drives and other resources of your computer. It also helps you move files from one folder to another quickly. So, while you are in Windows Explorer, see where My Documents is.  

 

*     Double-click it and all files in the folder will be listed.

  • Locate the file called 'flower' and right click it. It gets highlighted. Click Copy option in the menu.
  • Take your pointer to the folder called Drawings and right click it.
  • Then take the pointer to the Paste option in the menu and click it. The file will be copied in the desired folder. You still have a copy of 'flower' in My Documents. If you do not want it to be there then in step (2), use the Cut option instead of the Copy icon. (See Figure 4.6.14)
