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>

Picasa 3 is the latest release of thesoftware from Google, and comes as a much amped up successor to Picasa2.7. Some features have been added, and some functions have beenchanged. Overall, it is an improvement, with a markedly better upload(a lot less failures), some nifty new features, but a slightly buggingand confusing interface. It is a pain to add pictures, the automaticscanning goes haywire on your hard drive (we recommend not settingPicasa 3 loose on your hard drive to scan the folders automatically),and adding folders manually mysteriously fails from time to time.However, the hosting facility is one of the best free ones around, sothis is taking you through some of the interesting stuff you can dowith the software.
[
View All Portraits:
This is a really interesting feature inPicasa. You can view all the photos across all the albums with faces.To the left of the search bar, on the top, click on the face icon.Click on the icon again to get out of this mode, or click on ‘back toview all’. This is a filter, the other filter for photographs availableis all the pictures that are starred.

Upload A Slideshow To YouTube:
Select the ‘Movie’ button in the bottombar of Picasa. The first slide will be a text slide to introduce theslideshow. Rearrange the photos, add captions, select a music, selectthe transitions, and preview the slideshow a few times. Once you aredone, click on save movie, and then use the YouTube upload button inthe interface to put the movie on YouTube. Needless to say, you need tohave a Google account and an Internet connection for this feature towork.

Sync Picasa3 Software And Web Albums:
On the top right corner, above the albumor folder is the sync button. Using this feature automatically savesall changes you have made to your copy of the album to the version ofthe album on Picasa. This works for changes to the file, the tags, andphotos added or deleted to the album. This does not work forre-ordering the photos around in the album and changes made to the filenames.

Touch Up Photos:
This is used to remove spots from thesurface of the lense, artefacts caused due to dust particles or waterdroplets, and scratches and dust from old photographs.

Double-click on an image once it isadded to an album. Under the ‘Basic fixes’ tag, select ‘Retouch’. Usethe ‘Brush size’ slider to select a brush size. Ideally, you shouldselect a brush size a little larger than the size of the artefact youare trying to remove. Click once on the blot, and click to a similarplace elsewhere in the picture. The smaller the brush size, the lessnoticeable the patch up will be. Hovering over different parts of thepicture, you should see the blot getting covered up. You can undo a badpatch in this window itself. Once you are done fixing everything, clickon apply.
If you want to undo your changes, you cannot automatically redo them.

Screencapture Album:
As long as Picasa is running, taking ascreenshot of the screen using the [Print Screen] button will save theimage and add it to Picasa.

Improve All Your PhotosThis feature works to different degreesof effectiveness for different photos, but is one of those buttons thatlooks like magic. If you trust Google more than your photographyskills, select an album go to Picture > Batch Edit > I’m feelinglucky. There is no explanation for exactly what this does to yourphotos, but some photos were improved, some were horribly damaged. Copyall your files to another folder before you try this though, beforesomething goes horribly wrong.

CollageThe collage view in Picasa is ainteresting little feature to give previews for your Web albums. On topof the folder or album, next to the play slideshow button, is the MakeCollage button. Click on this button, and you will be taken to thecollage window. The default collage option is the picture pile, withthree border settings, no border, white border, and instant cameraborder. If your pictures are captioned, the captions will show up nextto the photos in the collage. There are five other collage optionsavailable, mosaic, frame mosaic, grid, contact sheet and multipleexposure. The mosaic arranges pictures in blocks of random sizes. Theframe mosaic displays one image in the centre, and frames it with theother photos. The grid and contact sheet have cells of equal sizedimages, and the multiple exposure mosaic is a strange option tosuperimpose all the images in an album on top of one another. Do notuse this option even by mistake in an album or folder with a lot ofphotos unless you want to crash your computer.

Search For Photos By Colour:
This is an experimental feature inPicasa 3, that lets you search for all the photos with a color scheme.Google searches for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and BWphotos. We wish they would have included a colour picker for thisfeature. Go to Tools > Experimental, and search for and click acolour. The orange search returns everything from red to yellow. Thegreen and blue searches are most accurate. The black and white searchesreturns all pale and grey colors, not photos that are strictly blackand white.

Customise The Bottom ToolbarPicasa 3 allows you to remove the rarelyused features from the bottom toolbar. Go to Tools > Configurebuttons, then remove, add or re-order the buttons as per yourrequirements and save the settings.

Get Rid Of Duplicate FilesTo get rid of duplicate files, go toTools > Experimental > Show duplicate files. Then select one copyof the files and press the delete button.

Copy protect your photosTo automatically add a watermark to allthe photos you upload to Picasa, go to Tools > Options and thenselect the ‘Web albums’ tab. Check the ‘Add a watermark for all photouploads’ checkbox and edit the text in the field. The photos uploadedto Picasa will have the watermark, but the photos on your disk will beuntouched.

Adding A Watermark To All Photos:
To automatically add a watermark to allthe photos you upload to Picasa, go to Tools > Options and thenselect the ‘Web albums’ tab. Check the ‘Add a watermark for all photouploads’ checkbox and edit the text in the field. The photos uploadedto Picasa will have the watermark, but the photos on your disk will beuntouched.

How to use my sms card


If you camera came with a cable that has a flat end (USB PORT) you can plug it into the computer and turn the camera on. The computer will recognize it and give you options to open the files on it. You can look through the camera files just like you would look through any disk files or usb flash drive files.

Once you find your camera pictures, I would suggest opening the MY Pictures folder on your computer. If you want all the camera pictures within one folder within the My Pictures folder, then first create a New Folder and give it a name. If you don't care and just want them spreaded all within the My Pictures folder then you don't need to create a folder within the My Pictures folder. You can drag and drop the pictures from the camera you want to the My Pictures or New Folder you created, or you can click Edit at the top of the camera window and select copy then go to the My Pictures or New Folder you created and click Edit at the top of it's window and select Paste.

If you want all the pictures from the camera, then you can select Edit at the top of the camera window and then SELECT ALL, then Edit followed by Copy, then go to the MY Pictures or the New Folder and click Edit then Paste.

I just bought a PNY 4 GB High speed usb 2.0 drive I would like to put my pictures on it how do I do it? from my computer.


Insert the USB drive into any USB port of your computer. When you do, you should see a window pop up that asks what you would like to do now. Click the option to browse the files. You should now have a window open for your USB drive. Next, open up my computer and find your pictures on your hard drive. Once you have found them, you can click and drag the pictures from the hard drive window to the USB drive window. Do this as necessary for any or all the pictures.

I dont know how to add songs to a folder in my computer


Click on "My Computer", select C drive then File "New Folder" then type in a title for the folder such as "My Music" then when ever you download tell the download site to download to this folder. This will make it so you can easily find your music folders. If you have the music on a Cd then open "My computer" select the drive with the Cd icon by right clicking on it and then selecting "explore" this will give you access to all the music files on the drive. Click on one of the files to select it, as indicated by a solid color change, then hold down the "shift" key on your keyboard and press the "down" arrow to select the rest of the files, then click "edit" "copy" then go back to My Computer and select the "C" drive and highlight the new "My Music" file and then click "edit" and "paste". This is just one method, a harder one in some ways, to copy files from a disc to the hard drive. From here you have the source of all the files for your "you tube slide show"
