What's the best way to update a Picture folder?

What's the best way to update a Picture folder? Icon

When I save images they go to my download folder, after a while I then transfer and organize the picture files in my pictures folder.

Sometimes though, some pictures have the same file name even though it's not the same picture. And other times there are duplicate files of the same picture.

I copy and paste into the folder and usually select manually whether to move and replace, don't move and don't replace, or move and keep both files. But when it's 1000 files it can be tedious. I would like to only have one single copy of a picture.

Is there a more efficient way of doing this?

 

Creating New Folder but nothing happens

Creating New Folder but nothing happens Icon

When I open a current folder the option to create a New Folder is there. When I click on New Folder nothing happens. I can copy and paste a folder with content but none of this makes sense. I am using Windows 7 Home Edition.

 

Some websites disable copy/paste feature - how to break them

Some websites disable copy/paste feature - how to break them Icon
Some websites disable the Windows copy and paste feature to use on their website. A text can not be copied and pasted either from using shortcuts : CTRL+C, CTRL+V or from using copy, paste option from the menu.

These website disable copy/paste probably for some safety reasons.

What gets changed in the Windows that disables copy/paste feature. Is there anything in Registry that gets changed or anything else or a website uses any ActiveX sort of thing to so it?

If it is done through Windows settings, could these be manually changed when the website disbales copy/paste feature ?
 

Copy and paste a file

Copy and paste a file Icon
When you copy and paste a file , you're making a duplicate of the original file that you can then modify independently of the original file. If you copy and paste a file to a different location on your computer, it's a good idea to give it a different name so that you'll remember which file is new and which file is the original. Watch this video to learn how to copy and paste a file.

Copy files from a folder to another on the same network share

Copy files from a folder to another on the same network share Icon

1. From my laptop (Windows 7) open network share on a server \\server1\share (W2008R2)
2. Right click on a folder "Folder1" under that path choose Copy.
3. Right click on empty aria of the same folder and choose Paste.

It creates a folder with name "Folder1 - Copy", the question is does the copy traffic go from the server to my laptop and back, or it stays inside the server? Does the network throughput affects the process? It was working quite fast, but at some point in became pretty slow and I have no idea why. Where to look at: the server, network, the laptop?

 

Managing your pictures

An easy way to locate and view pictures on your computer is to use the Pictures library. By default, the Pictures library shows all the pictures located in the My Pictures folder, but you can include other folders in your Pictures library, too.
 

How to restore "Pictures" in the Libraries tab

How to restore "Pictures" in the Libraries tab Icon

As I was transferring files around on my computer, I deleted the "pictures" portion under libraries. When I click on the folders icon along the task bar on the bottom of my screen to look through my computer for files, the documents, music, and video tabs are coming up under libraries, but not pictures.

In this screen, I right clicked "create new library," but when I do this, it asks me to "include a folder," rather than just letting me copy and paste the picture files I already have organized on my external harddrive.

I have all my files backed up on an external harddrive, so I'm not worried about losing the files. I would just like to restore this correctly so that it looks and functions like it always did/used to without extraneous subfolders.

 

Duplicate pictures with "vcm_s_kf" as their prefix in the pictures folder

Duplicate pictures with "vcm_s_kf" as their prefix in the pictures folder Icon

In both Vista and now Windows 7, in My Pictures (or Pictures) whenever I add a picture new files are created. In both Vista and now Windows 7, in My Pictures (or Pictures) whenever I add a picture to the Pictures folder a new folder is created with two smaller versions of the picture are created, one 127x160 and the other 270x338 pixels, both with vcm_s_kf prefixs in their filenames.

I assume that these are created for email or uploading purposes, but the folders that are created just get in the way, as I don't have a need for these smaller files, they just take up disk space and folder view space.

Is there any way to turn this action off?

 

Customizing Copy/Paste in Same Folder

Customizing Copy/Paste in Same Folder Icon
A new and improved feature of Windows 7 is that when files are copied and pasted into the same folder, the copy file name is the name of the original with "- Copy" which makes it difficult to select just originals or copies.

For example: original file named "Contract-102.docx" copy is named "Contract-102 - Copy.docx

In Windows XP the word "Copy" was at the beginning of the file name. How do I get this rule changed to the Windows XP format?
