This example shows the Encyclopedia folder (\CDE) on the left. Clicking on CDE displays its contents on the right, and clicking the plus sign (+) reveals its two subdirectories beneath and changes the plus to a minus, which is appearing now. By scrolling the left window to a different folder, files and folders can be dragged and dropped (moved and copied) between the left and right window panes with only one instance of Explorer on screen.
CREATE FOLDER In the left window, click the drive or folder icon in which the new folder will be placed and select File/New/Folder. The new folder will be created at the bottom of the right window. DELETE FILE OR FOLDER Right click the file or folder icon and select Delete. RENAME FILE OR FOLDER Right click the file or folder icon and select Rename. SWITCH DRIVES Click the drive icon of the drive you want to change to. COPY AND MOVE FILES AND FOLDERS There are several ways to copy and move files and folders using Explorer. See Win Copy/move files/folders. SELECT MULTIPLE FILES THAT ARE NOT IN ORDER To select several icons that are not next to each other, hold the Ctrl key down and click the icons one at a time. SELECT MULTIPLE FILES THAT ARE NEXT TO EACH OTHER To select several icons that are contiguous, click the first one and then hold the Shift key down and click the last one. You can also lasso them by clicking to the right of the file name on top or bottom and dragging to the diagonal corner. See Win Highlighting icons for more detail.
