Cut/Copy From Multiple Folders Simultaneously

Windows 7 has a nice feature hidden away in it – something that I haven’t seen in any other version of Windows or any other OS. But before I tell you what it is and how to reach it, try this yourself.

Say, you need to move or copy a bunch of files from different drives and/or folders into a single destination. How would you go about doing this? Typically, you’d take each bunch of files from a single location and paste it into the final destination, right?

In Windows 7, you can now do this in one step - by using the Document Libraries feature. Simply create a new document library and add the folders from which you want to take the files. Open the library and select the files you want. These files can be in different folders and even different drives (network drives included).

Select these files and cut or copy them. Move to the destination folder and paste them in. Windows 7 will collate the list of files from all the different locations and copy/move them to the destination. Ain’t that cool!

Libraries is one fantastic feature, which would help Photgraphers (to keep stack of pics) and Managers (to group the reports) Smile
