Managing Files and Folders
* Lesson 4 - COMPUTER OPERATING SYSTEMS 4.5 - MANAGING
FILES AND FOLDERS [1] Managing Files and Folders
[Managing Files and Folders]

Suppose you own a book shop. To manage it efficiently, you need to first
categorize books based on their subject, such as management or fiction. You
can then arrange these books in separate sections of a cabinet. You need to
provide appropriate name to each section so that it is easier to locate a
book. Similarly, in the Windows operating system, you use Windows Explorer
to arrange files in appropriate folders. Windows Explorer is a program that
helps you locate and open files and folders.

The Windows Explorer window in Windows Vista is divided into two sections,
called panes. The pane on the left side, called the navigation pane,
displays the structure of drives and folders on your computer. A folder is
a container for programs and files in GUI interfaces. It is represented by
an icon of a file folder on the screen. It can hold both files and
additional folders. The pane on the right is called the content pane. It
displays the contents of a drive or folder. You can select folders from the
list displayed in the navigation pane to view its contents in the content
pane.

In this simulated lab, you will use Windows Explorer to expand a folder,
create a new folder, and rename a folder. You will also use Windows
Explorer to copy a file, move a file, and delete a file from a folder.
Click to launch the lab. Follow the steps to complete the lab. [2]
