There are many things you can do with the latest features of Windows Explorer like; renaming setup files downloaded, showing file extensions, and quickly finding multiple files at no time.

When you are to select multiple files you can press the Ctrl key and at the same time clicking on each files on the list. It is more convenient for you to click a check box located on each respective file that you want to choose instead of holding down the Ctrl key. This command option is also present upon using Windows 7 the same thing as when you use Windows Vista.

You have to open Windows Explorer or Windows-E to make this option functional on your computer. Choose Search and Folder menus after clicking on the Organize option. You may need to click the View menu next, then scroll the cursor down until you arrive at check boxes for Use option when you have to select on a certain file. You have to click on OK after making it functional. It’s really that simple! Every time you point your mouse on a specific file you may immediately a check box present which is located at the column’s leftmost side section. You can do whatever you like to do after tapping the Delete option next from selecting and dragging multiple files. Now, you may also notice that the master check box is enabled after the Name tab for a quick selection of several files instead of pressing Ctrl-A like you used to do.

It is easy to distinguish one file from the other by seeing its extension names. Like for example, those files with .jpg/.jpeg/.bmp are classified as photo files; those with .doc extension is under the documents category; and so on.

You will notice a column that includes all files on the same category to minimize the time of finding one file with a different extension name and classification from the other, and likewise, lessens the need of proofing extension names if you look for your files using Windows Explorer Details.

For this process to be done, all you need to do is to follow simple steps to apply it on your own. You may press Windows-E as this is the fastest way or simply start Windows Explorer; choose options like search, folder, and organize, afterwards click the View tab; and you have to uncheck the marks after file classifications with hide extension names, then you may on click OK after following all steps. You may be able to see all file extension names at a glance on a single Windows Explorer screen. You may also do renaming files with similar or closely related names for easier searching.
