Yes, but only when copying or moving between drives or folders inside the system, not from the Web like in my case in point.
Fair enough. :)

Windows 7 64Bit Professional Custom Install

I registered on this forum with the sole intention to perform necromancy on this thread.

I have almost exactly the same problem as the original poster, I am somewhat of a collector of various images for reference and inspirational purposes; to streamline this process I have placed folders on the taskbar as seen in the screenshot below.

To save pictures I simply drag them to the appropriate folder for later sorting, but, similar to the starter of this thread i run into problems of duplicate filenames quite often, It would be utterly awesome if they could just be automatically renamed as they are when you copy or move files already on the computer. I would also be interested in something that makes every saved image show a save as prompt, for adequate naming of the files, when that is needed.
