C1. WINDOWS 95 TIPS

ONE-WINDOW FLOPPY COPIES

Need to copy a file or folder from your hard drive to a
floppy? Sure, you can go the long, two-window route and
drag the file or folder to the Floppy icon in My Computer
or Explorer, but did you know there's a one-window way?
From the desktop, My Computer, Explorer--wherever--click
the file or folder you want to copy with the right mouse
button, choose Send To and then select your floppy drive
from the pop-up list. Done.
