Efficient file management is crucial to enable the lab to run smoothly
However, keeping electronic documents organized can be quite a chore in today’s connected world. That’s where file management comes in.
Here are some resources for learning how to work with the files on both Windows and MacOS machines:
Both the Finder on MacOS and FileExplorer on Windows are limited in their functionality.
The most obvious shortcoming is that you can only navigate one directory at a time. You need to open multiple windows in order to drag and drop files from one folder to another but that is unintuitive at best.
On Windows One Commander is a free replacement for File Explorer that allows for dual-pane navigation that allows you to open two different directories in the same window and move files quickly.
On MacOS Commander One, also free, provides similar features.
