File organization tips: 9 ideas for managing files and folders


<p>The tips in this article can help you master file management by supplying some tips to help you better manage and organize computer files. After you've decided on a strategy for organizing and managing files and folders, we bet you'll see improved time management skills and increased productivity.<br /> The tips in this article can help you learn how to better manage and organize computer files. After you've decided on a strategy for organizing and managing files and folders, we bet you'll see improved time management skills and increased productivity.<br /><a></a> Tips to manage your files better Use these tips to help with organizing your computer files.<br /> <ol> <li><a></a> <b>Use Documents.</b> For many reasons, it's smart to take advantage of the Documents feature, which is called Documents in Windows 7 and in Windows Vista and is called My Documents in Windows XP. To open Documents in Windows 7 and Vista, click <b>Start</b>, and then click <b>Documents</b> to discover an easy way to store your personal documents.<br /> In Windows 7, the Documents feature is actually a virtual library. By default, the Documents library includes your My Documents or Documents folder and the Public Documents folder. You can customize the Documents library (in addition to the Music, Pictures, and Videos libraries that are also included by default) in Windows 7 to group files and folders from any location on your computer-without actually moving them. Or you can build your own libraries to easily organize your files. Learn more about <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Working-with-libraries">working with libraries</a>.<br /><br /> <img src="files_win7_libraries.jpg" /> <i>Libraries are a flexible way to organize your files in Windows 7 without moving them into one location.</i><br /> By using Libraries in Windows 7, Documents in Windows Vista, and My Documents in Windows XP, you can more easily:<br /> <ul> <li> <b>Find files.</b> Windows provides easy access to the Documents folder (and its subfolders) in many places, including the <b>Start</b> menu, the task pane in Windows Explorer, and common <b>File Open</b> and <b>File Save</b> dialog boxes, among other places. Read about the <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/windows-search">search feature in Windows 7</a>, or read these <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Tips-for-finding-files">tips for finding files</a> in Windows Vista and Windows XP. <br /> <li> <b>Back up files.</b> You should back up files regularly. Documents and libraries can help make backups a snap. <br /> <li> <b>Keep files separate from programs.</b> By separating document files and program files you reduce the risk of accidentally deleting your documents when you install or upgrade programs. To move files or folders from one location to another, right-click the file or folder name in the existing location and then click <b>Cut</b>. Navigate to the new location, and then click <b>Paste</b>. You can also <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Move-and-copy-files-using-drag-and-drop">drag a file or folder</a> from one location to another. To display two folder windows simultaneously in Windows 7, hold down the Shift key when you click to open the second window.<br /></li></ul> <li><a></a> <b>Adopt consistent methods for file and folder naming.</b> When learning how to manage files and folders, it is important that you develop a naming scheme for the kinds of files you create most often and then stick to it. To change an existing file or folder name, right-click the name in the folder structure. Click <b>Rename</b>, and then type the new name. <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Keep names short.</b> Even though you can use long file names in Windows, you should not necessarily do so. Long file names can be harder to read.<br /> Let your folder structure do some of the naming. For example, rather than creating a file called Great American Novel Chapter One First Effort, you can build a structure like this:<br /><br /> <img src="files_win7_folders.png" /> <i>The folder structure can help you avoid using lengthy file names.</i><br /> <li><a></a> <b>Separate ongoing and completed work.</b> To keep the Documents folder from becoming too unwieldy, use it only for files you're actively working on. As a result, you can reduce the number of files you need to search through and the amount of data you need to back up. Every month or so, move the files you're no longer working on to a different folder or location, such as a folder on your desktop, a special archive folder, a flash drive, an external hard disk drive, or even a CD. <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Store like with like.</b> Restricting folders to a single document type (or predominantly one type) makes it easier for you to find files. For example, with all of your graphics in a single folder-or in a single library in Windows 7-it's easy to use the slide show feature in Windows Explorer to find the right picture for your newsletter. You can also use libraries in Windows 7 to group files together for easier searching without moving them into the same place or use the <b>Arrange by</b> command to sort files by criteria, such as author, date modified, and type. These criteria can change based on the file type (documents have different Arrange by criteria than photos, for example). <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Avoid large folder structures.</b> If you need to put so many subfolders in a folder that you can't see all of them at a glance, consider creating an alphabetic menu.<br /><br /> <img src="filestructure.gif" /> <i>Alphabetized folders can help you stay organized.</i><br /> <li><a></a> <b>Use shortcuts and shortcut links instead of multiple copies.</b> If you need to get to the same file from multiple locations, don't create copies of the file. <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Create-or-delete-a-shortcut">Create <i>shortcuts</i></a> to it instead. Shortcuts are links to files or programs and are represented by icons with an arrow in the lower-left corner. To create a shortcut, right-click the file and then click <b>Create Shortcut</b>. You can drag the shortcut to other locations. Microsoft Office 2010 includes some built-in shortcuts with the new Backstage view. To see Backstage view, open an Office file and then click the <b>File</b> tab. In Backstage view, click the <b>Recent</b> tab for a list of links to your recent documents. The <b>Recent</b> tab even includes a <b>Recover Unsaved Documents</b> option. In Backstage view, you can create, save, and send documents, inspect documents for hidden metadata or personal information, set options, and more. <br /> <li><a></a> <b>Quickly get to the items you use every day.</b> Jump Lists, a fun new feature in Windows 7, are lists of recently opened items, such as files, folders, or websites that are organized by the program that you use to open them. You can use a Jump List to open items, and you can even pin favorites to a Jump List. To see a Jump List for a particular program, just right-click the program button on the taskbar.<br /> <li><a></a> <b>Consider storing documents online.</b> You can also keep documents your company's <a href="http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/Pages/default.aspx">Microsoft SharePoint 2010</a> site or on <a href="http://explore.live.com/windows-live-skydrive">Windows Live SkyDrive</a> so that you can easily access them from outside the office, share them, and edit them online by using <a href="http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/web-apps/office-web-apps-FX101825822.aspx">Office Web Apps</a>.<br /></li></ol>

Create and Change Password, Picture and User Name in Windows 7


In Windows 7, the logon screen usually contains a picture that you choose when setting up the computer and a default user name. Since I purchased my computer from Best Buy, the picture was already set and the user name was simply User.
Not very unique! The first thing I did when I got my computer was to change the user name and change my user picture. That is what I’ll explain in this article.
Change User Name in Windows 7 First, click on Start and then Control Panel. Then click on User Accounts and Family Safety.
1.png
On the next screen, click on the User Accounts heading at the very top.
2.png
Finally, click on Change your account name to actually change the user name. If you want to change the user name for a different account, click on Manage another account.
3.png
Now type in the new user name that you desire and click the Change button.
51.png That’s it! Once you click Change, you’ll be back to the previous screen with a preview of the new login screen.
4.png Change User Picture in Windows 7 To change the user account picture, simply click on the Change your account picture link in the second step above.
5.png You can either choose from the default pictures in Windows 7 or you can click the Browse for more pictures link. Once you have chosen the desired picture, click on the Change Picture button.
Change/Create User Password in Windows 7 If you want to create a password for your user account or change the current password, click on the Change Windows password link.
7.png If you don’t already have a password setup for your user account, you can click on the Create a Windows 7 password for your account link, otherwise you can click Change your password.
8.png So those are the most common three tasks when managing user accounts in Windows 7.

Can I use networking between the two computer, the one computer has the operating system which is windows XP while the other computer has the operating system which is the windows 7?


Yes you can network XP and 7 together. The trick to this is during network setup you have to change the workgroup name on your XP computer to match Windows 7. The default workgroup name on 7 is homegroup. Change the name to homegroup in XP. Next during network setup on your 7 computer when you reach the workgroup options the setup will generate a password to access your homegroup. Write this password down and don't lose it. It's kind of hard to retrieve if you misplace it (speaking from experience :) ) You should now be able to share your router and files. Hope this was helpful.

Unable to connect to internet on broadband, keep getting error message 651, Win 7. No problem prior to loading Win 7, used to have Vista Ultimate.


This a well known bug in Windows 7 specially when you migrate from Windows Vista to Windows 7.
The cause is a file "raspppoe.sys". This file will be found on the partition you have installed your operating system If it is C: partition then it is found on C:\Windows\System32\drivers.
