Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing and selecting files in File Explorer, part of Windows 10: Tips and Tricks.
We're going to spend a little time with File Explorer now…looking at some tips and tricks…for not just viewing your files, but selecting them as well.…Let's use the Exercise Files folder, you can double click it…to open it up, this does have multiple files…and another folder, a sub-folder called Photos.…Really though, you could be working with any folder…you like at this point, so long as you…have multiple files inside.…Now the view that I'm seeing here…is giving me a number of columns.…I can see the name of the file, the date it was modified,…the type, the size, if we go to the View tab,…you'll see that my default selection is Details.…
