    Copy & Paste differences with Win. 7 & 10?


    I have several Windows systems!

    2 x Windows 10 & 1 x Windows 7 Prof.

    I noticed that when Copying and Pasting files in Windows 10, it doesn't appear to have the File check saying ' Newer ' (as does Win. 7 Prof) if the file to be copied over is Newer than the existing one?

    I really like that method!

    Windows 10 offers 3 Options but doesn't appear to be as useful as the Windows 7 Method!

    Can I get Windows 10 to ALWAYS recognise if the File I am about to Copy over & Paste to a different folder is Newer than the existing one in that other Folder - File I would like to replace if it is Older?

    Thanks

    I think you have some other program installed on the Win 7 system, possibly Teracopy, that is generating the Newer choice. That's not part of the OS as far as I can see.

    My laptop was running Win 7 for 1 year+ before it was upgraded to Win 10.
    I never saw the " Newer" option in my Win 7.

    Mine was a Home Premium edition, but I don't think that would make a difference.

    Well I always had it on Windows 7 Home and it was definitely not an add-on.

    Really ?
    If you still have Win 7 Home, would you please post a screenshot on that?

    If I have time later on tonight, I will swap drives back to 7 and try to get you a screenshot. Fair warning, it will be late tonight.

    I love that Win. 7 format and is one big reason I am reluctant to change to Win. 10 on that particular machine!
