    When I click on Copy in Dropdown Menu what is its Default


    Hi all, When I right Click on a File and Click COPY in that drop down Menu" where does that COPY finish up? I thought it would Default to my Desktop? But that's not the case' I cannot find it. Can I change the "Default Location" for Copy Files to the Desktop Cheers Dasha

    Hello Dasha,

    When you right click on a file and click on COPY, it places a copy of that file in the clipboard cache.

    Only when you right click on a location (ex: folder) and click on PASTE will it save a copy of the file at that location.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
