Windows Explorer Tips
Closing Parent Windows
If you are using multiple window browsing, closing a whole bunch of parent windows will be annoying. No problem. Hold down the Shift key and close the child window. Bingo! All the parent windows will close automatically.
Opening New Window Under Single Window View
Users using single window browsing can easily open a new window by holding down Ctrl and then click on a folder.
Taking Over Window Under Multiple Window View
Like the tip above, users using multiple window browsing can easily force the new folder to open in the current window by holding down Ctrl and then click on a folder.
Deleting Without The Recycle Bin
To delete a file without going through the Recycle Bin, hold down Shift and delete.
Solving A Mouse Drag
If you have accidentally dragged an icon and wished you haven't do it, the next time you come to this situation, hit the Esc key before you release the mouse button. The icon will jump back to place.
Up One Level Key
Pressing the Backspace key under normal Windows or Explorer will bring you back to the parent folder, giving the same function as the "Up One Level" button.
