Windows explorer

I am having problems moving large amounts of files
explorer eats up way to much memory and cpu usage that it ends up freezing
i mean even moving small files is a major pain in the buttocks.

it eats up so many resources that it ends up freezing its a major pain in
the buttocks

Yeah, I was moving a executable (465MB) from a zip file. It took awhile for
the copy command to kick in, but took about 2 or three mins to copy. I have
512MB rambus (800mhz).. I need more ram. Keep in mind you are running beta
software. But yeah, having tested this OS, I'd recommend that people have
atleast 1GB of sdram, preferably ddr. And a good gpu on a IC card (nvidia or
ATI).

Windows Explorer

I like the old way of launching Windows Explorer in XP. WE was also easy to
locate as a shortcut off the Start menu in XP. It seems in Vista it is
broken up in sections on the Start Menu, i.e., Documents, Pictures, Music,
Games, Computer, etc. Is it possible to revert to the old style of Windows
Explorer, where one could open a single WE shortcut and have the entire
contents of the hard drive listed in a tree view? I find now that just
navigating to a single folder off the C: drive requires more mouse clicks
than XP. Am I missing something?

Thanks,

JW

Start Menu.
Then I right-clicked Windows Explorer > Properties > pasted

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,c:\

into the Target: box.

Is it not strange that when I paste that command string into the command
line/search box that it opens control panel?

Create a shortcut and add one of the commands below to the TARGET box in the
properties box of the shortcut.



Configure Windows Explorer

My Computer" highlighted in left side with all drives visible but not
expanded and C: highlighted in right side: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
/e,/select,c:



Desktop highlighted and nothing expanded: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe
/e,/n,/select,/root,c:



All drives visible and the system drive highlighted and expanded in full
screen: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select



All drives visible and the system drive expanded in small screen:
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/select,%systemroot%



Only Windows Directory visible highlighted and expanded:
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,/root,%systemroot%



All drives visible but only C: highlighted and expanded:
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,c:



Nothing expanded and My Computer highlighted in right side:
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /n,/e,/select,



Opens the Windows folder as a folder: %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%



Opens as "My Computer": %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%,



This opens the Desktop folder with "My Computer" highlighted:
%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe %systemroot%,/select,



"Desktop" highlighted in the left side and no drives visible:

%systemroot%\explorer.exe
/e,/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D},/select



"My Computer" highlighted in left side and all drives visible but none
expanded:

%systemroot%\explorer.exe /e,/root,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}



"Desktop" in left side highlighted and "My Computer" highlighted in right
