One item that got a lot of attention in Windows 7 was the Explorer and Windows Explorer has been drastically improved and let's go take a look at it and I just want to show you a few things about Windows Explorer that you're going to like. Now if you notice there Windows 7, the background changed because I have it set, let's go out there and look at that just right quick why that happened and if you look at the Desktop Background you will notice that mine are set on this landscape, right here- I don't know if you can see these little checkmarks, well obviously you can see them, but this is telling me that I have landscape in right now and these are going to go through. Now every ten minutes the picture changes OK, and they are going to go in this order, just over and over and over. I can tell it to shuffle them; I can add more pictures and so forth, OK? But that's what caused that particular picture to change right there OK? But now let's get back to Windows Explorer. If I just go down and left-click on Windows Explorer you're going to notice that it comes up to this Default View alright and it's going to show me my 4 Default Libraries, Documents, Music, Pictures and Videos. Now there's quite a few things happening here that you need to be aware of. First of all these libraries are different from things that you've seen in the past and their actually virtual containers and we'll go into more depth with those because we're going to do a video just on libraries a little bit later in the course, so look for that video. Now let's talk about what all can happen here. First of all you're going to notice that if I go into Documents, we'll just kind of start at the top and work our way down. If I go into Documents and then go into Visual Studio 2005, you will notice that it's building what's called a breadcrumb and I can see my- see where I'm at and I can see how far in. Now this is the same as the old DOS path if you will and instead of these little triangles if you just picture that backslash here. OK, but if I want to get back to the libraries all I have to do is just click on Libraries and it takes me right back there. Now something else I can do in Libraries if I click on this I can see my choices. I can go into Documents and I can click here and I can see My Documents and Public Documents and you're like wait a minute, I don't see that here and that's what we'll talk about later, OK? So I don't want to confuse you now. Notice right away I can do a Search in My Documents in whatever I type in here will cause those items to come up, OK? And let me go back, I can add in the search field for type, date, modified, sizes that sort of thing, OK? So as you can see I can choose my sizes OK? And so we will take that out for right now. Now, the next thing I want to show you is right up here, notice Organize. I can change the Layout, now there's a lot of things happening. There's a Navigation Pane here, there's a Details Pane here and I can go turn those Off. So if I go to Layout and turn Off the Navigation Pane that goes away, so if you don't like that thing go kill it, OK? I will turn it back on. You will notice also that there is a Library Pane, OK? And that will turn off the Library Pane, OK? And if you notice that is right here, it'll tell me what Library I'm in and then there's another one and it actually has a button over and that is the Preview Pane right there. Now what is the Preview Pane? Well, the Preview Pane, notice if I click on this it actually looks into that particular file and I can resize this to see what's going on in there, OK? I'll double-click this to open that file that you see, that, that's a TCPIP Memorization Chart, OK? Actually it was included in another course that I built. But anyway the Preview Pane will turn that on and off and that's a real cool thing to get that thing on and off. Notice I can arrange this by Folder, by Author, by Tags, all kinds of things here, OK? Then this is the View Button, notice I can see things by Tiles, I can see things by Details right? And I can see things by Small Icons. This is the very same, this is the same as the View Option that used to be over here on the left side in previous versions, OK? Share with; we'll talk about these later, OK? Burn, this is real interesting, let's say that I click on a Folder, say Visual Studio 2005, all I have to do is click on Burn and I can burn that to a disk. All I have to do is put an insertable disk in and I won't do that right now. Notice that I can also e-mail, I can click on this to e-mail it to somebody and then the one button you probably already seen it is right here, New Folder. This shows up all over the place in Windows Explorer. In prior versions it was on certain windows and it wasn't in others, you're going to see it everywhere now, OK? And that's a big one. OK, now let me show you one last thing. Well a couple last things, there's always more things in Windows 7. Down here at the bottom we're at the Details Pane, OK? Now notice that this showing the Author, I can put a Title in here and add a Title. I can add Tags, I can add a category and these are the things that used to be a little harder to get to but I can get to them very easily now, OK? And I can add comments on here. This is some cool stuff, OK? Now if I don't want to see all that I can go into Layout and turn the Details Pane off and I don't see that, OK? So you're going to see everything here is so incredibly easy but there's a lot of things. You can spend a career in here customizing Windows 7. Now here's the thing you're going to love the most, remember the New Folder I just created? Well let's say that I put stuff in my New Folder and I want to be able to get to that from everywhere inside Windows Explorer. I just simply left-click this thing, drag it over to the favorites and drop it and notice there it is, OK? Now, whether I'm at the root in libraries, I can always get to my New Folder. Whether I am in My Documents and I go into Visual Studio 2005 and I go into Projects. I can still always get right back to my New Folder, OK? Now that's not creating a New Folder, notice I have a couple of other ones here. Here's my Visual Studio 5 Folder that I dragged there, no matter where I am I can always get back to my New Folder that I created or I can get to my Visual Studio 2005 Folder, OK? So you can drag as many things as you'd like over here. You can also expand and compress these things, so that you can see what you need. A lot of stuff is going on. Now, haven't even touched on the right click and Jumping into, these are things that are pinned and these are frequent things that I've had open, OK? So a lot of cool things that you can do here, all I'll tell you is go out and play with the Windows Explorer, a lot of power, a lot of new features here, you're going to like what you see with the New Windows Explorer.
