Copying a file or folder in Windows is a fairly straightforward process, and can be done in a few simple steps.
1. Find the file or folder you want to copy. Open a Windows Explorer window by pressing the Windows Key + E on your keyboard, or clicking the folder icon in the taskbar. Navigate to the file or folder you want to copy in the left pane of the window.
2. Select the file or folder you want to copy by clicking on it once.
3. Press Ctrl + C on your keyboard, or right-click the file or folder and select “Copy” from the context menu.
4. Navigate to the location you want to copy the file or folder to in the left pane of the window. This can be a different folder in the same directory, or an entirely different directory.
5. Press Ctrl + V on your keyboard, or right-click in the right pane of the window and select “Paste” from the context menu.
6. Windows will now display a dialogue box asking you if you wish to replace the existing file or folder with the one you are trying to paste. You can select “Yes” to replace it, or “No” to keep both the original and the copy.
7. Once you have made your selection, the file or folder will be copied to the selected location.
If you need to copy a large number of files or folders, it may be faster to select them all at once by pressing and holding the “Ctrl” key while selecting each file or folder with your mouse. When you have selected all the files or folders you wish to copy, right-click on one of them and select “Copy” from the context menu. All of the selected files or folders will then be copied at once.
