Is there a hotkey(s) for "copy to folder" & "move to folder"? Thank you bigtime for the f2 "rename" tip!

Maybe you're still thinking about the Context Menu "Copy to Folder" and "Move to Folder"? If so, then of course is. And much more is.

In Windows Explorer on the "Menu Bar" click on "Edit"? We are on the same page, right? Anyway, clicking edit gives you the drop down sub menu, but "Copy to Folder", "Move to Folder" and "Invert Selection" don`t have a key combination on the right column like all the other choices do. I was stoked to find out about f2 to rename, it would be tits if there is a similar shortcut for copy to and move to.

Win+X gives me the Windows Mobility Center. My OS is W7U X64.

Yup, for Windows 8, not 7 but you can check here to integrate it in a similar way into Windows 7 using the context menu.

Thanks for this link, it will be sweet having an elevated command prompt and disk management two keys and a click away.

You can also enter 'God Mode' by typing a in the search box of Control Panel.

I knew about naming a folder GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C} but I really like your tip, thank you :thumbsup:

Here's few:

Windows + M = Minimize all windows.

Right click Action Center icon on taskbar to select/open Windows Update.

Use Ease of Access center in Control Panel to disable additional windows animations, you can also use GPEdit. (This method stops Windows stupid animations to be enabled later by default, how you define those stays)
