Thanks for everyone's replies. The answer seems to be no. We have toHow can we get pre Win7 naming convention for copies. Prefer all
copies together under "Copy of ..." rather than with filename. Thx.
accept Windows 7 doing things a different way to all previous Windows
versions. The copying process of WinXP and before would leave all my
copies in one place and I could go from there. Now I end up with the
copies with their originals so I have to travel all over the folder,
hunting. If we'd had the Win7 behaviour all along, no doubt I would
more than used to it, it's just that after nearly 20 years of one way,
I have to learn to live with that along with all the other changes
Win7 forced on us without choice. Using scripts and everything else
as a solution is just one added inconvenience. I was hoping for a
toggle to switch this new behaviour off and back to the older
behaviour. In other words, I was hoping for an ability to return to
behaviour I was used to, not to add on to an already heavy workload
with addtional steps. I'll just have to learn to live with it and
figure out how to do things differently.
I really hate how M$ forces us always to change. Why not leave option
for users to keep behaviour we've been used to. I think that that's
why Window$ would not be my first option if I had any choice in the
matter (i.e., like at work).
Thanks. Tabling this one as it has no viable solution, it seems.
