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.…
Give that a click and you'll see what I see.…And these are columns that we can go to their borders…in-between and stretch them out…if things are getting cut off,…size them down if we don't need them to be quite that wide.…When you see the double arrow, just click and drag like so.…Now you're seeing information but there's other information…we might want to see, like a preview for example.…
