Selecting multiple file

When you’re selecting a bunch of files in Windows 7, what’s your method? Do you drag a box around them and hope you don’t ensnare anything extra?

For few files hold control and click the desired files. Alternatively if you need a solid bunch of files; click the first one then hold shift and click the last one (you can now release the shift button. You can also use Ctrl+Click on top of this grabbing the stray files.

Smart window

View two windows side-by-side using Smart Window (Windows 2007 only):

  1. Click and Drag on the Title Bar of the first window you wish to use and drag it to either the left or right side of your screen. Let go of the window when you see the outline of the window re-size to ½ of the screen.
  2. Then choose the other window you wish to view on the other side of screen and click and drag it until the outline appears and it resizes to the other half of the screen.
