Copying a File in the Same Directory

By LeisureMan ·
Hello,
is there a way to make a copy of a FileName.doc to FileOtherName.doc *in the same directory* without using an application that created the original file?
(I mean not using the Save as... way).
Thank everyone in advance.

Hello...

I presume you're using Windows...

1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory so it appears in the right side of the window (directory tree on the left side).
2. On the icon of the file you want to copy, right click and hold hte button down.
3. Continue holding the right mouse button down and drag the icon to some open white space in the same directory window.
4. Release the right mouse button.
5. A pop-up menu will appear. Choose "Copy Here".
6. A copy will be made with name "Copy of XXX".

Another method:

1. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the directory so it appears in the right side of the window (directory tree on the left side).
2. Hold down the CTRL key.
3. On the icon of the file you want to copy, left click and hold the button down.
4. Continue holding the left mouse button down and drag the icon to some open white space in the same directory window. Notice that there is a little "+" next to the mouse pointer. This indicates a copy will be made
5. Release the left mouse button.
6. A copy will be made with name "Copy of XXX".

yet another method: YAM
open windows explorer. select the file to be copied. press <ctrl>c and then <ctrl>v to create "copy of filename.doc" which is a copy of "filename.doc" right click on "copy of filename.doc" and select rename to rename the file to "whatever you want.doc"
