Windows 8 File Management process has been showcased by Microsoft in official Blog. Here are the screenshots and video of cut, copy, paste actions in Windows 8.
In MSDN Blog, Steven Sinofsky has written that “We wanted to do an early Windows 8 post about one of the most used features, and one we have not improved substantially in a long time. With the increasing amount of local storage measured in terabytes, containing photos (in multiple formats and very large files), music, and video, these common operations are being taxed in new ways.”
How the file management system Cut, Copy, Paste differs in Windows 8 from other versions?
As Steven Sinofsky has written, Copying, moving, renaming, and deleting are far and away the most heavily used features within Windows Explorer, representing 50% of total command usage. For Windows 8, we want to make sure that using these core file management commands, which we collectively refer to as “copy jobs,” is a great experience.
