    basic copy/paste operation


    This applies to any Windows 10 computer.

    I am reluctantly upgrading my online stuff, and most day to day computing, to a Windows 10 computer. One of the better things I discovered on Windows 7 was, for a copy file operation
    “there is already a file with the same name in this location”
    there were three options

    option 3: “copy but keep both files”

    serially numbers each new addition, allowing easy backup of frequently changed files onto a USB drive with zero hassle of jumping through the hoops and long waits of using a special program. I use do frequently.

    In older systems there was at least the possibility of changing the file name myself within the copy operation but the current system is dumbed down. In Windows 10 there seems to be only the possibilities of replace and skip.

    Is there some easy way to save multiple copies?

    :)

    We need more information about your concern so that we can identify the cause of the copy and paste issue. Please provide the following:

    We would also like to know if you are experiencing this within a specific browser.

    To further identify the cause of the issue, we suggest performing a clean boot to check if there are any startup programs that could be conflicting with the copy and paste function. For steps on how to perform a clean boot, click
