As you can see in the image above, the destinations offered in Windows XP and in Windows Vista are not very many. Neither Windows 7 would not be more ...


.. But if hold down Shift while give right click the file / folder you will notice that the number of destinations to which the file or folder you selected is much higher ...


I don't really know how I could send the "SMART" folder (taken as guinea pigs for this example) by fax or putty.exe, but we have to understand that Windows 7 is currently in a Beta development stage. :)

Oh .. and the picture above you can also see two new options to me occurred when I used the combination Shift + right-click.

Copy as Path - Copy location (Path) File or folder HDD. In the example above, the SMART folder is on Desktop. After I gave "Copy as Path", "W: UsersStealth" was saved to the clipboard SettingsDesktopSMART "

Open in New Process - Open the contents of the folder in a new process. (Ex. explorer.exe). This novelty is very important in resource management system.
