Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Windows 10: Organizing Files and Folders.
- [Instructor] I know you're eager to get started with file management, who isn't? But before getting started, I have a few notes and some items to get out of the way. This course uses Windows 10 as the operating system. You can use that operating system on any desktop or laptop PC, but the course is specific to that version. Older versions of Windows access some of the commands presented in this course differently, so what you see on your computer screen may not match up with what's presented here. Specifically, the File Explorer program in Windows 10 offers a rich set of features that aren't as easily found in other versions of the operating system.
Also, outside of the exercise files, what you see on my screen might look different from what you see on your own screen. That's okay. All Pcs are different. You might even have a cat picture on your desktop. Whatever. Beyond that, I recommend that you obtain the sample files which are used in demonstrations and exercises throughout this course. Another movie explains how to install the files.
