Important to note and before we begin... The four simple Windows commands that we will learn today are create new folder, copy, paste, and rename; and are all accessed with a right-click of the mouse. Knowing this in advance will help make learning how to use these commands easier... Let's begin.
To illustrate the use of these four simple Windows commands, we are going to learn by doing. And here's what we are going to do... We are going to create two new folders on your Windows desktop called "Folder 1" and "Folder 2" and then copy a .jpg (JPEG) picture file into "Folder 1." Then we are going to copy the picture located in "Folder 1" into "Folder 2" using the copy and paste commands and then rename the picture in "Folder 2" with a new name. So before we continue, please print this page now and work from the printed page as you will need to close your web browser now in order to continue with our little copy and paste exercise...
Ready? Here we go! If you haven't done so already, close your web browser and all other programs that may be running until you are looking at your Windows desktop. You will know when you are on your desktop when you can see the "Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your screen along with all your desktop icons. Are you looking at your Windows desktop? Good. Now position your mouse cursor on a blank area somewhere in the middle of your desktop and right-click. Notice the menu that appears. Highlight the command "New" and then highlight "Folder." Now, left-click on the word "Folder" and presto! The menu disappears, and a new folder called "New Folder" appears highlighted in blue; appropriately called "New Folder." Now begin typing the letters... "Folder 1" (without the quotes) then press the Enter key. You have just created a new folder called "Folder 1." If this isn't what you see, then right-click on the folder and select "Rename" with a left-click." Then type "Folder 1" (without the quotes) then hit the Enter key. Be sure to get this right before you continue.
Again position your mouse cursor on another blank area somewhere in the middle of your desktop and right-click. Notice the same menu appeared as before. Again highlight the command "New" and then highlight "Folder." Now, left-click on the word "Folder" and begin typing the letters... "Folder 2" then press the Enter key. You have just created another new folder called "Folder 2." Once your two folders have been created, we're ready to continue...
Locate a digital .jpg (JPEG) picture of your choice from anywhere on your computer and right-click on the file name. Notice that a different right-click menu appears! Next, highlight "Copy" and left-click. The menu disappears but indeed, the file has been placed on your Windows clipboard and it's now ready to be pasted somewhere. We'll paste it into "Folder 1." Here's how... First close all open windows by clicking on the "X" in the upper right-hand corner of each window and then position your mouse pointer over "Folder 1" and right-click. Highlight "Paste" and left-click. Presto again! A copy of your picture file has been placed into "Folder 1"! Double-click on "Folder 1" to open the folder and you will see the copy of your picture file in there where it should be! Do it now.
Important to note is that when using PrintSix®, you will never use the "Cut" command... Only the Windows commands "Copy" and "Paste" should be used when transferring picture files.
Now let's copy the picture file from "Folder 1" into "Folder 2." Here's how... First, open the "Folder 1" window with a double-click (it should already be open from the previous step) and then right-click on your picture file to highlight it. Select "Copy" from the menu and then close the "Folder 1" window. Next, position your mouse cursor over "Folder 2" and right-click then select "Paste" with a left-click. You now have another copy of your picture file in "Folder 2." The original copy of your picture file in "Folder 1" is still there and will always be there until you delete it. Let's delete it now.
Double-click on "Folder 1" then right-click on your picture file and select "Delete" with a left-click. Confirm with "Yes" to the "Confirm File Delete" message and the file disappears to the recycle bin. Close the "Folder 1" window and now let's delete "Folder 1" in the same way... Right-click on "Folder 1" then select "Delete." Confirm with "Yes" and "Folder 1" is gone it's way to the Recycle Bin. All that is now left is "Folder 2" containing a copy of your original picture file.
Let's rename the picture file in "Folder 2." Here's how... Double-click on "Folder 2" to open the folder then right-click on your picture file and select "Rename" with a left-click. Begin typing "pic1" (without the quotes) then hit the Enter key. Done. Your picture file has just been renamed "pic1." Finally, close the "Folder 2" window to get back to your Windows desktop and delete "Folder 2" in the same manner as you deleted "Folder 1."
Congratulations! You are now a veteran "copy and paster!" And with just a little practice, using these common Windows commands will become second nature to you.
