Windows 7: Copy and Paste on Windows 7

Copy and Paste on Windows 7

hi there, i just installed windows 7 premium, and i realized when i do copy and paste, all the file that i copied will be automatically organized

If we do copy and paste on Windows XP, all the new file will be on the bottom of the list so it easier to look at.

I tried to copy Music File into music folder and because i have a thousand of file i can even remember which one did i copy since windows 7 organize the file alphabetically straight after i finish copied them.

any way we can do like windows xp, so when i copy and paste , all the file that i paste will be sitting on the botton so it will be easier for me just to drag it into my itunes.

cheers guys...

sorry if this thread make you confusez !! :)

Right-click in a blank area of the Windows Explorer window where your files are, then go to

View>>Sort By

and pick "Date Modified"

Hiya pal and welcome to the forums.

You could use a free program to copy from 1 place to another more efficiently

But if you don't wish to use something like this then you could simply click on the tab which will sort your files by date ... this will then show he latest files you have just copied


soz profdlp beat me 2 it

The files you paste will already be selected.
Click and hold on one of the already selected files then drag to iTunes.
Done deal.

As long as you do not click on something else the files will already be selected.
