Automatically rename existing (destination) files on conflict when copying files in Windows

Automatically rename existing files when copying files in Windows using Copywhiz.

Why rename files?

During your file copying process, you often get a pop up notifying that the file already exists in the destination. You are asked if you want to replace or skip or keep both the files. Copywhiz can automatically rename the destination files. Plus, you can also specify a rename suffix of your choice. This feature is useful to differentiate the older file with a newer file. You can suffix the file with terms like ‘_old’ etc.

The advantage with Copywhiz is that you can pre-configure this setting so that such questions will not be asked in the middle of a file copying process.

Automatically arrange memoboard sticky notes at Windows PC startup

If you are a Notezilla user, you would have regularly created sticky notes on your desktop and many directly in your memo boards too.
By now, you know that a sticky note created on the desktop will automatically be placed in the Home memo board too. Similarly, when you alter a sticky note, say, resize it on your desktop, it will simultaneously be changed into the memo board too. This feature also applies when you modify it directly in the Memo board.

Although your desktop is unaffected by this, your memo board view changes. Your sticky notes may overlap with each other due to this resizing and may not look presentable. You can try rearranging them manually, but this would consume a lot of your time, especially when you have a lot of notes.

This is why you should use one of Notezilla’s beneficial feature- Auto arrange sticky notes on startup.

This feature will automatically arrange the sticky notes in your memo boards whenever you start(open) Notezilla. You can do anything with your sticky notes now without worry since they arrange automatically the next time you use Notezilla.

This is how it would look Before:

memoboard notes

How would you sort this?

  1. Go to the Notezilla notes browser and right click on the memo board and select “Properties”.
  2. A settings box will open up. Select “automatically arrange notes at startup” and click “OK”.
  3. Memoboard Properties

    So the next time you open Notezilla, all the sticky notes in your memo boards would have been arranged in a neat and orderly manner.

    This is how it would now look:

    memoboard arranged notes

    This way, you don’t have to come back, again and again, to manually arrange the sticky notes.
