Windows Vista introduces some of the most significant changes to Windows Explorer, and file management in general, since the release of Windows 95. Windows Explorer has a new layout, featuring a Details pane that allows you to view extended properties and metadata of files. The Details pane also include a thumbnail of files that are a visual representation of the actual file. Locating files is also improved upon with the new instant search feature that is integrated into all explorer windows. This course demonstrates the necessary skills to manage files with Windows Explorer, create and save files to removable media, working with Windows programs, as well as printing in Windows Vista.
