Organizing Windows Files and Folders

What we discussed:

A. How to organize Windows files and folders
B. How to find, Save and send images as email attachments

A. How to organize Windows files and folders

During class we practiced opening a new Window frame using the right-mouse click option and selecting “Open in new window” from the drop-down menu. We then moved files from one Window to the other either in bulk, or one at a time. In the video below, I have duplicated the steps we took that day, and organized the strategy into 4 separate parts.

Part 1: (0:00 – 1:30 min/sec) Window frame Views / Preview pane.
Part 2: (1:30 – 3:00 min/sec) Organizing files / folders. Sorting files.
Part 3: (3:00 – 6:20 min/sec) Moving “bulk” files into folders.
Part 4: (6:20 – 8:30 min/sec) Using “Search” to gather files and bulk move.

B. How to find, Save and send images as email attachments

During the second part of class we attempted to get into our email accounts, most of us without success. However, we did manage to very briefly explore Google Images, find an image we liked, “Save as” and download it. Some students were even able to attach it to an email and send. In the video below, I walk you through these exact steps for locating an image, saving it to a designated folder, and then attaching it (or pasting it) into an email.

Resources:
Here are a bunch of free and paid image websites for you to locate images from. Just (right-mouse click) and select “Save link as…” to download the PDF document below.
