Improved Copying, Moving and Renaming Files Comes with Windows 8
Windows 8 will feature an improved copying, renaming, moving and deleting of files.
President of Windows and Windows Live, Steven Sinofsky, announced their planned improvements for Windows 8 in a blog post. The company’s major redesign of its flagship operating system is expected to have improved copying, moving, renaming and deleting files. Windows 8 will be designed to run on tablets, laptops and desktops with a home screen featuring optimized tiles for touchscreens.
Director of program management in Windows’ engineering team, Alex Simons, said in the blog post: “There are some pretty cluttered and confusing parts of the Windows 7 copy experience. For Windows 8, we want to make sure that using these core file management commands, which we collectively refer to as ‘copy jobs,’ is a great experience.”
That said, Windows 8 developers are creating one place to manage and monitor all copy jobs, offering people more control of copy operations. Alex Simons sports the following features of Windows 8:
* Users can now review and control all the Explorer copy jobs executing in a single user interface.
* The ability to pause, resume and stop each copy job underway, giving control over which operation should go first.
* Each copy job’s data transfer speed, transfer rate trend, and how much data is left for transfer are now displayed in a real-time throughput graphs.
With Windows 8, all files from the source are on the left, while those in the target location with file name collisions are on the right. Alex Simons posted a short video demo of the upcoming OS’ features. And in case you haven’t seen it yet, posted below is a video demo of Windows 8’s user experience.View Article Source »
