Become a file navigating superstar! Veronica Belmont has a few tips to help make your life easier on today's Tekzilla Daily.

[ music ] >> Today's Techzilla Daily is brought to you by godaddy.com. ^M00:00:06 [ music ] ^M00:00:10 Welcome to Techzilla Daily, I'm Veronica Belmont. While Windows Explorer makes it possible to browse files, it can be pretty ornery at times. Luckily I've got a few tricks here to make it a whole lot easier. If you love the details view, but get frustrated with having to resize the columns to see the full filename, just hit control and the plus key on the number pad. This will automatically adjust all of the columns to the width of that longest name. If you want to auto resize one of the columns, double clicking on the divider will do the trick. Or maybe you love browsing the folder tree. Well instead of clicking a folder to expand it, just hit the plus key on the number pad. Or if you want to expand all the folders and subfolders at once, hit the star on the number pad. Pressing minus will hide them all once more. And there you go. Now you can navigate your folders and files like a pro. Got a tip for us to pass along to the rest of the TZ crew? Just email us at techzilla@revision3.com. And there's always techzilla.com, it's the place to find more tips, tricks, product reviews, and how to's. If you want to make an impact online, godaddy.com has what you need. Dot com names as low as a dollar ninety nine, plus world class hosting, fast and easy website builders, and much more. Plus enter code TZD5 when you check out, and save an additional ten dollars off any order of forty dollars or more. Some restrictions apply, see site for details.
