  1. Windows 10 - Replace/Skip but no variation...


    • Coming from Windows 7, we had a feature where if a file had the same name, it would copy it over and add a (2) onto the end of the name. This does not happen in Windows 10, and causes me great frustration. How do I fix this miniscuel thing?

    • Reason: When copying old files/folders it will leave behind any file with the same name; while to some it's not desirable to have 500 documents called (2) (3) (4) I find it very useful and saves a lot of time with transfers.

    Replace or Skip

    Neither option does what you ask.

    Skip will not copy the files which have the same name, irrespective of any that have been modified.

    Replace will copy ALL the files with the same name, even if they have not been modified.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
