Many file-types automatically save certain additional information in so-called metadata, whether you want them or not. In Office files, metadata contain the author and the person who last saved the file, for example. While you may sometimes find this information useful for yourself, metadata can also give away a great deal of personal information about you and your work on the computer when sharing or publishing files. To better protect your privacy, the metadata information hidden in your files can be deleted if necessary.
In Windows Explorer
In Microsoft Word and Excel 2010
You can open several folder windows at once in Windows Explorer in just a few clicks.

To rename multiple files or folders simply:
Windows Explorer moves to the next file and selects the file name to change.
Windows offers another option, allowing you to take screenshots using the Snipping Tool.
The Snipping Tool is also integrated into Word:
A programme has crashed and is blocking several processes. If the programme stops responding, you can shut it down without going through the Task Manager:

Via the File Explorer address line
File Explorer will open the Startup folder immediately.
Via the File Explorer folders tree
When you shut down the computer, Windows closes all the windows you have been working on. It is possible to change one of the folder options settings so that the current session with all open windows will be saved and reopened when you log in:
From now on, windows will now keep track of the last windows opened and will restore them the next time you log in.
